We love Urban Lace Jewelry for so many reasons. Not only is the jewelry delicate, distinct and perfect for a cocktail party, but it also takes eco-friendly accessories to a whole new level.

Made with the planet in mind, the bracelets, necklaces, earrings and masks are constructed from used bicycle tires that designer ‪Barbi Touron‬ and her partner Aaron Shear get from bike shops.

Barbi started designing jewelry in her basement in 2006 for her friends, and with a little word of mouth, her designs caught on and are now available online.

An added plus with your purchase is that Barbi and Aaron will donate a portion of the proceeds each year to an environmental education group of their choosing.‬

Prices of jewerly range from $34.99 to $49.99.
