Meet Del & Lee
Every item of jewellery is handmade and one of a kind, which allows for the production of special and individual pieces.
As Leesa’s creations gained traction and attention with great feedback from the public, she began probing into the creation of more products out of bike tubes, as well as other recyclable materials.
Leesa’s love of nature is reflected in her work and in the unique design of her products. She believes in creating individual pieces that reflect both ethical and sustainable standards, so that everyone can enjoy her jewellery while remaining conscious of protecting the planet.
Having always had an interest in fashion and design, as well as being a long-term advocate of recycling and doing all things possible to preserve the planet, Edel was instantly excited and interested when she first saw Leesa’s creations. Like many more people, she was extremely impressed with the quality of Leesa’s designs, most notably their durability and versatility, as well as the lightweight feeling of the products, which is such an important factor of comfortable earring wear.
Over the last while, with both her children in school, the time felt right to partner with Leesa and build and establish a business together.
From this long-lasting friendship, Del & Lee was born.
Our Environmental Policy
Our jewellery is made from recycled inner bike tube material as well as other recycled components.
All the bike tube material is sourced locally from the Westport Bike Shop. From there, it is taken to our workshop where it is washed and treated before it is turned into unique stylish earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
Each piece of jewellery is carefully designed and cut out of rubber material. Beautiful coloured beads and other details are then added, it’s at this stage that the jewellery really starts to come to life!!
With thousands of tyres and tubes been thrown into landfill each year, using them to create a sustainable jewellery brand was a no brainer.
Because of this, our customers can enjoy wearing our jewellery while knowing that they are actively helping the environment when they do!
