Urban Lace specializes in making unique eco-friendly designer jewelry. Their one of a kind jewelry is created from recycled bicycle inner tubes collected from local bike shops. They also use recycled ultra micro fiber from post industrial fabric waste in order to create our bold and colorful pieces. Their goal is to make high quality, high fashion, environmentally friendly products that people love to wear. We create elegant design with the planet in mind.
So what do old bike parts and Jewelry have to do with each other? Well for the purpose of this story, just about everything as a matter of fact.
Here be Urban Lace Jewelry. These little beauties are hand crafted by designers Barbi Touron and Aaron Shear, and are re-born from discarded inner tubes of bicycles. Because thousands, (if not hundreds of thousands we think) of inner tubes, are thrown into landfill each year in the US alone, Barbi and Sean have dedicated themselves to reducing the amount of this slow to decompose material, by turning it into chic, wearable, art.
The inner tubes themselves are durable, flexible, and waterproof. Each finished piece has been carefully washed and coated in an organic plant based formula that Urban Lace has developed, giving the material its lasting luster.
Available in the range are wrist cuffs, anklets, necklaces, earrings and masks. To find out more, go to their website here.
