Reinvent the Wheel

Your personal style will be riding high with these sophisticated cufflinks. Made by master silversmith Christine Bossler, the clean, minimalist hardware is 100% hand crafted using recycled sterling silver. The bezels are inset with medallions of upcycled bicycle tire inner tube that once rode the mean streets of Detroit. The unique material adds a touch of unique texture and a freewheeling spirit, but delivers it with understated refinement. Handmade in Detroit, Michigan.

    Comments about BIKE TIRE CUFFLINKS:

    The cufflinks are very nice and unique- the only downside is that you can't really tell from the picture that the tire part of the cufflinks is curved- they look flat on the pictures. I returned the first pair thinking they were defective but was advised that it's the nature of the material to be curved. Second pair came in very fast and while still curved, they are not as curved as the first pair. My husband loved them since he is an avid cyclist and they are unique but not crazy so he can wear them to work.

        My husband is a cyclist. These cufflinks were a perfect, practical gift for him. He has worn them to several meetings at work already.
