INTRODUCING: Black Ship Crafts Bike Tube Earrings!

I had made Earrings for friends and sold a couple pairs at craft shows in Minneapolis to test the waters, and, I after testing, had none left! Which to me sounds like success, so I've since made more and now have them available through the BSC store!
  New Designs:
    -Spirals, Large and Small
    -Tassels, Large and Small, Long and Short
People have long been wearing earrings made from leather. Now, you have the opportunity to sport it in bike tube style!

Black Ship Crafts

The first official post on the the newly launched BSC Handmade blog!

So, at this point, I've been making bike tube belts and wallets, among other things, for about 8 years now, and BSC has been around for almost a year, the store has been running since early this year, and I finally learned how to professionally build bike frames from scratch! It's been a busy year and a rewarding experiment putting all this together.

I'll do a few blasts from the past, but most of what you'll see here is what I've been up to this summer and then updates about new bike tube items and craft fairs, and progress on the frame building front. For orders or questions, please email me at
