About

They both come from the East Coast. She from the South, he from New England. New Orleans was where they met. She an engineering student, he a bike mechanic. He fixed her bike after she was hit by a car. She made clothes and jewelry to help pay her expenses, and he showed her the world of bicycles like she had never experienced. She was inspired by bicycles, and he was inspired by her. She makes jewelry from recycled and upcycled materials. Together they build clocks, lamps, coathangers, candle holders, etc.

    Originally from GA, I attended university in New Orleans where I received my engineering degree. I started my business during a leave of absence to help fill my days, and it grew beyond my expectations.

  • Jarrod

    Originally from MA, I moved to Denver after high school. I've been a bike mechanic for 15+ years. After Katrina, I moved to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding. I met Rachel there, and we've been together ever since.
