Can you imagine that someone can create such a beautiful Bling Bike with the vintage costume jewellery? Art Romero from California not just created a beautiful piece but also boost his self confidence. As a vintage jewellery collector he thought to create a Bling Bike with help of those vintage jewelleries. He thinks that it is great idea to present these jewelleries that’s lasted so many years.

When we ask what difficulties he has face to create it, he says – It was a challenge for me, to collect vintage jewelleries and fixing them on the curved surface of bike. It is not easy to fix a flat surface material on curved surface. I collected everything earring, necklaces, brooches, chains, buttons. The list is so long. If I see at a yard sale a box of tangled jewellery, I make an offer and usually take them home without spending more than $5.00.

It is not easy to complete such a time taken project, which does not have any specific reason. Usually people tend to leave such tasks in middle, but Art Romero fights with this tendency. Spending 3 months of pots of coffee and 10 tubes of glue and whole lot of jewellery make him to create this Bling Bike.

When we asked what positive changes he finds in himself after completing this project? He said – It’s awakened a creative spark in me, I never knew I had. What I am, an artist? I don’t know. People say it, so maybe I am. But it gives me immense pleasure when my friends ask me – Art, have you lost your marbles? I tell them, “No, just look at the bike. They are on it… somewhere.”

    • Cindy,
      Thank you! I’m so glad you like my Bling Bike. I just recently donated the bike to a museum. It is now at, “The Bunny Museum”. (
      This museum has the largest bunnie artifacts collection in the world and is recognized by The Genous Book of World Records. In this museum they have an entire section of bunnies on bikes. Lol! Believe me, it fits in very nicely and I’m just happy to know it will be seen by thousands of people every year. Sure beats sitting in my garage doing nothing.
      Thanks again!!
      Art Romero
