Once upon a time, a girl named Rachel was working at the Boston Museum of Science and making jewelry on the side. This was the first bike she made.
Then she learned how to solder better, and set stones in bezel cups. But instead of stones, used little beads.
Then she learned how to MAKE her own bezel cups, and set little opals.
Then she learned how to make a bike and cast it with her dad, and made this brass version with little hearts.
Then she made a smaller version, which she also cast, and made into rings, necklaces, and earrings!
And then she got crazy about oxidizing things black and adding some gold accents.
And so far, that has been the evolution of the Rachel Pfeffer Bike. I think I'd like to go back to the more freehand versions of the originals though, for a little change up!
