Bike to Body to Heart
UpCycle Jewelry began organically with the desire to give back. I enjoy making jewelry for friends, and I love to wear what I make as well. A while back, while working as a teaching artist at a large event, I kept getting compliments on my "Raven" necklace. Because the event was helping non-profits working for the greater good, I began offering to make these necklaces for those that complimented it in return for donations to different non-profits. Today, I am amplifying this idea through UpCycle Jewelry. I transform donated bicycle tubes, cogs, chains and findings into beautiful art for your body. Sustainably created with love, a portion of all profits benefits organizations specifically aligned with climate justice and access for all. Thank you for supporting my practice and helping to make a difference.
