These rings from Jam Home Made & Ready Made are created from recycled bicycle spacers. The Japanese leather and jewelry band took inspiration from the Olympics with these brightly-colored bands, which are paired with muted metallic bands for each stacked jewelry set.

I love the use of gunmetal gray bands over black to set off the brightly-colored rings.

Implications - Upcycling is the easiest and most affordable way for a company to show corporate social responsibility, feeding into the environmental frenzy that seems to have taken over in the last few years. These Jam Home Made & Ready Made bracelets are a great example of how versatile recycled materials can be.
