About

I was inspired by the bicycle. For me, and for many, the bicycle symbolizes a number of things, some prosaic, others, profound. When one considers rising gas prices and the wide implications of oil dependency, witnesses streets and highways choked with cars, the bicycle represents a practical, environmentally and socio-politically beneficial transportation alternative. It’s also a way to stay active, fit, and ready for any bi-o tri-atholon that pops up on my radar at the last minute.

Then there is the deeper connection to my surroundings I experience when I am on a bike. I slow down and pay attention to the details that often elude me: the smell of carne guisada wafting out of the taco carts on East Riverside, the grade of the incline up Robert E. Lee that sends a searing burn through my muscles, the cacophony of downtown at mid-day as cars, buses, and people criss-cross each…

Then there is the deeper connection to my surroundings I experience when I am on a bike. I slow down and pay attention to the details that often elude me: the smell of carne guisada wafting out of the taco carts on East Riverside, the grade of the incline up Robert E. Lee that sends a searing burn through my muscles, the cacophony of downtown at mid-day as cars, buses, and people criss-cross each other en route to various destinations….you get the point.

A bicycle represents many things: practicality, courage, adventure, awareness, and joy. A commuter ride during the heat of the day full of encounters with other cyclists creates an entirely different experience than a solitary midnight cruise, accompanied only by the luminescent glow of the moon. While no piece of jewelry can illustrate this, the simplicity of my designs is meant to leave the interpretation up to you and conjure up your favorite memories on your bike.

Go outside and enjoy the day –experience the miracle of the bicycle and the adventures it has to offer—whether it’s discovering the beauty and romanticism in the mundane, making a heartfelt connection with a fellow cyclist, or experiencing an entirely new environment in a way that you can only on a bike.

Sincerely,
GGD
