At Velo Bling Designs we live and play in the mountains of Colorado. Our jewelry is made from recycled bicycle parts obtained from the local bike shops in and around Denver & Boulder, Colorado, and manufacturers scrap. Every recycled part is cleaned with environmentally friendly degreasers and cleaners. From chains and cables to cassettes, hubs & nipples, we feel we have created something unique for the cycling enthusiast.
The Founder & Artist: Ed Dunne
Velo Bling Designs was created by outdoor cycling enthusiast Ed Dunne. As a young man in Michigan, Ed started out speed skating and racing motocross. Ed went on to college at Michigan State and got a degree in forensics. After graduating, Ed decided it was time for a move. He packed up and headed for Colorado to be a ski bum and look for a career in crime fighting. Once in Colorado Ed soon discovered his love for mountain biking and spent all his free time discovering new trails throughout Colorado.
Ed found a career as a crime scene investigator which he enjoyed for 17 years, but found it difficult to mountain bike while he was on call for work. Ed started thinking of other things he could do that wouldn’t require he forfeit time on the bike. Soon, Ed discovered his creative talent for making jewelry from bike parts. His friends all loved his work and asked him to make some for them. Ed became inspired by the strong interest in his new found craft and with the help of his wife Margaret, decide to start a business creating fun, funky, functional, jewelry and gifts. Now Ed and Margaret with the their crew continue to design new and innovative products from the “Funk & Junk” that the bike shops throw away.
Our products are handmade from recycled bicycle parts and due to the nature of recycling, all of our products will vary slightly. Some will have slight imperfections in the materials that are incorporated into the design and look of each piece. We find our customers enjoy the uniqueness of our designs.
