Question: How do I clean my recycled bicycle jewelry?
Answer: It's very simple to clean or even to just shine up your bike jewelry. We use Meguiar's Auto polish but any car polish will work to shine and protect your recycled pieces. A silver jewelry polish may work too if you have some. Just rub a small amount of the polish all over the piece. Let it sit and dry for 15 min. or more. Now polish it with a soft cloth. Voila, all shiny again!
Question: Can I get my chain link necklace or bracelet wet or will it corrode?
Answer: Like most of our jewelry you can get it wet BUT it must be dried afterwards. (just like you would dry your bike chain so it does not rust). When we make the jewelry, every piece is individually cleaned and polished to protect it from the elements, however that does not make it water proof! NONE of our jewelry will take kindly to salt water. So, DO NOT wear it in the ocean. But, it is made from bike parts! That said, if you make a habit of getting it wet, the necklace (and most of the jewelry) will loose it's shine more quickly. The pieces of jewelry which are most likely to corrode from getting wet are the Ultimate bracelet, the Hidden Link bracelet and the Twisted Chain Link necklaces. We will NOT warranty our jewelry for corrosion.
Question: Should I oil my bike chain bracelet?
Answer: NO, NO, NO. Never! See question one above.

Answer: The bangles are what we would call an average or medium size ( 7 7/8" inside or 8" outside circumference). However we like to please, so if you would like a smaller or larger size just let us know. We can easily make them 1/2 smaller or larger at your request.
Answer: No. Please do not try and adjust the spoke piece that is on the back of the buckle. It will snap off if forced. Under normal wear it will should be fine. However, if you do have a problem with any of the parts just send it back to us and we will gladly fix at no charge.
