Bikers wear jewelry. There we said it, it's a fact. The biker community includes a fair number of doctors, lawyers and other professionals--an affluent group of potential jewelry customers. They've shown they're quite willing to spend what it takes to indulge their passion for motorcycles and the lure of riding the open road with their gang. And that includes jewelry--though they may not call it that. Bikers want baubles that are tough, wears well on long rides, go with their steel and denim, and symbolize their love of the road.

Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has a variety of jewelry items bikers would love to wear including rings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces that can be used to create own biker-themed jewelry lines.

Let's get started with a few examples of biker-style finished jewelry:

Finished Jewelry

Ring

Leather is a vital component of biker apparel. It's comfortable and stands up well to the elements. These rings add an acrylic pearl for extra visual appeal.

Components

As we've seen, while steel and leather are two mainstay components, additional materials and design elements can be used to create roadworthy jewelry. Pewter (tin-based alloy) and ''pewter'' (zinc-based alloy), as well as brass, are cost-effective substitutes for steel. Here are some examples of biker-style components:

Antiqued gold-plated pewter (tin based alloy) skull beads with a wide drill hole easily slide onto multiple strands or thick cord such as leather.

"Pewter" skull with wings can be used as a charm for pendant, earrings and bracelet.
