The Katie's Bike Rainbowz Bike Chain Necklace is one of the highlights of her cycling jewellery range. Strictly Limited Edition and entirely handmade in Katie's mobile workshop, it's another stunning piece of cycling-themed jewellery created from recycled bike chains - which she hand cleans, finishes and polishes herself.
The rainbow of bike chain links are aligned in a V-shape, linked neatly together using gold plated hoops. The chain itself is 16 inches and also gold plated, with an extra link for the clasp. The Katie's Bike Rainbowz Bike Chain Necklace comes displayed with a customised piece of recycled inner tube, in its own gift box.
It's one of the boldest statement pieces of bike jewellery we've come across and we just love its design, the story behind it and the quality of workmanship.
Each coloured link is a recycled piece of standard bike chain.
The gold-plated chain is 16" (41cm) long.

- 100% hand made
- 100% recycled
- Hand cleaned, polished and acrylic painted where necessary

- Comes mounted on customised inner tube, in gift box
There are plenty of jewellery designers making great use of the irresistible shapes and timeless designs within cycling. But when it comes to creating magical cycling jewellery from up-cycled bike parts, Katie is the Queen.
When we first met her, Katie was working from her London workshop, creating imaginative and beautiful designs from a combination of jewellery designing talent and 'found' pieces of bike apparatus. As an American, however, she was keen to spread her wings and has since begun long distance tours of the UK and beyond with her other half Luke, creating and designing her jewellery in their mobile laboratory/caravan.
She feeds off the inspirational locations that they end up basing themselves and she runs her business in a truly 21st century way whilst drawing on more creative skills. Katie finds all her components by 'urban mining' them from local bike shops' bins, putting them through an intensive multi-stage cleaning process and honing them into something special.
