Announcement   Biking is the best! But my rubber bike tubes eventually end up in the landfill, and they have to hang out for a looooong time. So pleasebikethanks is a chance to keep some of them out of the landfills, and repurpose them for something beautiful.
--------------------------------------------

Thank you for visiting my etsy shop! I hope you find something you like. Maybe your earlobes can give these bike tubes a new home.

Please note that all of my earrings are crafted from bike tube rubber that has been washed with soap and warm water, and are assembled on clean earring hooks.

Also, because the rubber is stretchy and ... well, rubbery by nature,and therefore somewhat difficult to shape in a predictable manner, you may notice that two earrings in a pair are often not perfectly symmetrical. The good thing is, these slight mismatches really aren't noticeable when being worn. they just contribute to the uniqueness of that pair of earrings dangling from your earlobes.

Hello there!

I am transforming my pile of flat bike tubes into a jewelry collection. I wash them with soap and warm water before taking the X-acto to them.

If you have a thing for aardvarks or squid or forget-me-nots or morning glories or Abe Lincoln silhouettes or any shape lacking in what I have listed, I can make custom orders, if you allow me an extra week.
Thanks for stopping by!
