Chainspirations – bicycle chain jewelry to celebrate and inspire fitness!
Promoting healthy living is the passion of Chainspirations.
Jewelry is created from recycled bicycle chains (or YOUR bike chains), paired with vivid colors of anodized jump rings and packaged with a fitness-inspired quote in the form of a mini-envelope on the (100% recycled paper) packaging. A portion of the proceeds are donated to organizations that promote healthy living. Products are also offered as fundraising items.
We are partnering with The Motion Initiative to disassemble the recycled bicycle chains. (The Motion Initiative is an organization working to facilitate adventure, freedom, and hope, through the gateway of cycling, to the inner city youth of Grand Rapids, Michigan)
As an avid cyclist for over 20 years, I have discovered a path to a healthy lifestyle in this sport; it offers me both physical and mental benefits.
In 2008, when the last of our six children was ‘off the wallet’ (through college AND employed), I said goodbye to a rewarding career in information technology. The first two years were spent on my bike and catching up on items that I had put on the ‘back-burner’. My realization that although I had some large hurdles in my life, I loved my life and wanted to find a way to give back. Chainspirations is my vehicle for this - creating an eco-friendly company that promotes healthy living!
A healthy lifestyle can help combat an array of preventable illnesses. It helps one lead an independent, happy and healthy life. I want Chainspirations to help people celebrate and inspire fitness. By wearing bike chain jewelry, the fun memories of rides past can come alive and be an inspiration to become more aware of everyday choices of fitness and look fashionable at the same time!
