A snippet from the article
FORMER motor mechanic Mike Price is passionate about recycling. He hates seeing something that was once useful
and could be reused thrown into landfill. And he has used that enthusiasm, his engineering knowledge and skills, together with a large helping of creativity to set up a business making unique hand crafted jewellery and gifts from second-hand bicycle spokes.
This enterprise called Respoke Designs, which recycles or upcycles cycle parts, is proving a massive hit with the cycling community as well as other customers wanting something a bit different. His bicycle range – including earrings, bracelets cuff links, keyrings, brooches and necklaces – has extra soul because they are made from
bicycle spokes, he said. “Cyclists love the bike range. They know how hard it is to bend and shape stainless steel and
they appreciate it.”
