These bike earrings with spiralling wheels were specially made for us in Kenya. Using a single piece of wire to create each bike, each one is unique, from the front bell to the rear rack. If you love your bike these are an adorable way to show it or they make a lovely bike gift for the cycling fan in your life.
Living conditions in the Nairobi slum where these are made are pretty harsh with few basic amenities and scarce opportunities for employment. Zakale Creations is a shining light - providing training to young people, including taking some of them off the streets and away from drugs. Several of the trainees have gone on to create their own businesses which is a great testament to this pioneering and creative project.
Each bike is 3cm x2.2cm with a 5cm drop
