Sharing a bit of skateboard history and love

SkateBetty started years ago when I was managing a skateboard shop and I decided to start making little trinkets as gifts for friends and staff out of the old skateboards we always had piling up. Soon my staff started contributing ideas and it is with their encouragement and the support of the local skateboard community I really started to go for it and make more accessories and projects.

Now I often have a porch full of busted boards donated by local riders. Finally it got to the point were I was getting hundreds of boards and that is when friends and family joined on to help with design and manufacturing. Each skateboard donated to us to recycle is a gift. In keeping with the good karma SkateBetty supplies and findings are all sourced from other Etsy makers and small local businesses. This helps us to support other makers and the local economy in a pretty rad way.

I am so stoked to share pieces of our local skate history with people from all over the world.

    SkateBetty Recycled Skateboard Shop was born out of my long time love of skateboarding and skate culture. I make my pieces using simple sustainable designs that allow me to spotlight the beautiful dyed maple layers and poetry in a broken deck.

Welcome to SkateBetty!

We are stoked to present to you our collection of hand crafted jewelry, art & accessories. Each item is made from the damaged remains of busted boards that we have been accumulating through years of being involved in the Winnipeg, Canada skate scene. Every item on this site is a unique one of a kind piece that has it's own personality. All markings are the original design of the deck in combination with the wear inflicted by its' skater. Each piece is a part of a story that begins with the construction of hard rock maple formed into a skateboard. That board becomes a part of a skaters hopes, dreams, goals and sometimes pain. When it is done it's job we step in and transform the skateboard into a new piece. The story of that skateboard continues on through the people who rock our accessories.

We don't think that recycling old boards will save the planet or keep our landfills from over flowing but it is a great way to keep us connected to the idea of appreciating & re identifying with some of our possessions. Falling in love again with the things that have given us so much joy, beauty & challenge.

Custom Rings Policy

Custom ring orders are made to standard U.S. sizing and measured using a professional regulation mandrel. We recommend having your finger sized by a jeweller before ordering as all custom rings are final sale. If you are purchasing rings as wedding bands we recommend buying a few back ups as these rings are made from used skateboards and will not tolerate moisture and have a limited lifetime especially if you wear your ring everyday.

Ready Made Policy

Any unused ready made items may be returned within 30 days of your order. Please contact us for a return authorization number. We will refund your purchase once the item has arrived back. We do not cover return shipping fees.
