Upcycled High Fashion Jewelry from Bike Parts

April 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Make RAD jewelry with worn out bike chains and popped bicycle inner tubes. Recycling artist Becky Tesch will share her trash to treasure fashion making ideas and designs with you to help you create your own bracelets, earrings, necklaces and more.

You’ll walk away from the class with a few rad jewelry pieces for your collection or for gifts, as well as the knowledge of how to make your own in the future.
