Ode to the Bicycle

etsy - morikaty What a beautiful day for a

bike ride!

Searching Etsy this morning for a gift, I came across this sweet bicycle pendant by morikaty.  I just love it’s vintage charm and think it would look great layered with a few other delicate pieces.  Ruche

I thought I’d see what other bicycle themed pieces were out there and couldn’t believe how many cute things I found.

This delicate little charm “A boardwalk bike ride” is from Ruche, and at only $16.99 makes a perfect gift.

These two pretties caught my eye, not only because the necklaces are cute, but the presentation is lovely.  The nostalgic necklace by ChinaCherie on the left shows great detail – enhanced by antiquing the silver plating.  The petite pendant on the right by dandyapple, features a fun vintage bicycle  advertisement showcased under an acrylic bauble, and is mounted in a scalloped antiqued brass setting.  This is one of my favorites – it reminds me of my scrapbooking style.

These Victorian style drop earrings from Jezebel Charms are so unique.

An homage to the first machine to ever to be called a bicycle. 

Note: Literary lovers will adore this designers work…must see jewelry and accessories. 


etsy - sarahooYou all know I love crochet – so I fell in love with these adorable crocheted earrings with tiny bicycle charms by Sara Hoo.  I love their subtly and delicate femininity. 

They would make such a thoughtful gift for the bike lovers in your life. 
Etsy - CosmicFireflySo what about the fellas?  We have several friends that love their bikes, and my husband has even discovered a new found interest in his.

These cufflinks by Cosmic Firefly are snazzy and have a nice pop of color.

For the quirky cycling enthusiast, these ties by Toy Breaker are pretty neat.  They are original hand-drawn illustrations.  The ties are made of a soft microfiber, having almost the same hand as real silk and are printed with high-quality, non-toxic, water based ink.

I love the rustic look of this belt buckle from Flight Path Designs.  It would look great with a pair of jeans and a navy/blue button down shirt – making the belt a little surprise twist.

Finally – I am so tempted to buy this  bow-tie for my 17- month-old nephew, Owen.  All ties come ready to wear, so no worries if you don’t have knot tying skills.  

Well, with all this talk of bicycles, I think I’ll go take mine for a spin!
