Re-krea is an enviro-conscious brand founded in 2011. It was born as a result of our concern about the environment and the impact we have on it.

We handcraft unique jewelry using recycled materials like inner tubes, bicycle chains, electric cables, textiles…

We hope that our work will inspire and make you look at the wastes in a different, more creative way.

 

RECYCLED
INNER
TUBES

Recycled inner tubes are one of our favorite materials. Each kind of inner tube has its own properties like thickness, size and surface shape which allows us to create verity of different designs. Bicycled inner tubes are more flexible that is why we use them for twisted, coiled forms. On the other hand the thickness and the size of the tractor tube makes it ideal for flat designs. The diversity of the inner tubes gives endless possibilities of design.

RECYCLED
BICYCLE CHAIN

The first step to repurpose bike chains is to clean and disassemble them. We use different techniques to do this like washing, polishing, oiling. Once it is done the puzzle play begins. Recycled bicycle chain links are great for both delicate, subtle, minimalist designs and if accumulated they can make eye-catching statement jewelry. What we like about working with bike chain is its unrefined, industrial aspect which makes it a perfect material for both women and men jewelry.

RECYCLED
ELECTRIC CABLES

It’s always thrilling when we open en electric cable: what colors are hiding inside this time? Yes, electric cables hide plenty of different colors and shades! And it’s wonderful to play with them to create one of a kind upcycled jewelry. To do that we use different techniques. We stitch them, coil them, twist them: all depends on sort of the cable we are working with.

RECYCLED
TEXTILES

Recycled textiles is the easiest to find material suitable for making upcycled jewelry. Owning to their lightweight and colorfulness, textiles fit more summer jewelry. They are also easy to prepare and to work with. With a pair of scissors only we make stunning bracelets, necklaces or rings.
