Bicycle Bracelets

Spoken For Bicycle Bracelets
The Spoken For bracelet is a patented design perfected over the last 13 years on the sands of sunny St. Thomas. Using Wheelsmith brand stainless steel bicycle spokes, Sergio designs each bracelet and hand turns it into a unique, durable piece of jewelry. Wear it when-ever, where-ever, as the 15 gauge steel band will never fade, tarnish, or break! The chosen beads are American-crafted or are imported from Africa, Central America, South American, Asia. Beads are chosen for their durability as well as their appeal. From novelty beads, to classic ceramics, from traditional African trading beads to funky mood beads, you can choose the look that you like, order it to size, and wear as a single bracelet or stacked. Spoke-n For bracelets are an affordable, fun option as your everyday jewelry.
