and wear primarily through enviromentally friendly means. We specialize in making bike chain bracelets (our best sellers), belts and wallet chains made out of recycled used and new bicycle chains. We believe in helping the environment in style. People often associate bike chains with biker or goth culture and label them ‘biker bracelets’ and such. This is true, however a black or colored bike chain looks very classy with formal wear. Elchains caters to both markets of fashion.
Elchains has the most diverse collection of bike chain bracelets on the market. We have stainless steel bracelets and a full color spectrum to choose from for our bracelets. We treat the bike chains with a special solution and process to ensure rust resistance and prevention of hypoallergenic reactions. We love to design bracelets with skull trinkets and have 5 to 10 skull variations to choose from. Skulls are universal in symbolism, to Elchains it symbolizes the possibility of our environment dying if don’t take care of it.
Seldonmly discussed, wasted bicycle chains actually do have an environmental impact through carbon emissions. Converting bicycle chains that would normally be thrown away into jewelry helps the environment however minute the numbers are. 90 some odd percent of the bike chains we use for our bracelets are new. The average lifespan of a chain on a bike pales in comparison to the lifespan of wearing a piece of jewelry. Therefore, we feel that even new bike chains used for our bracelets is eco friendly as well.
