The purpose of Danda Borealis is to reduce waste, and reuse recyclable material to create jewelry that makes environmental, economic, sustainable societal statments.

Danda: A symbol of spirit. The spirit of the bicycle community is strong and continues to grow. You can wear these accessories as a symbol of your support of the bicycle community and eco-culture's movement.

Borealis: North. As in Aurora Borealis, The Northern Lights. I've spent most of my life in Alaska, spoiled with natural northern beauty. I've recently moved to Chicago, for love and life, and feel the urge to share some of the beauty that has influenced me.

18% of your purchase here is donated to a non-profit bicycle cooperative in Alaska. The northern bicycling community's spirit continues to grow. This is a way of supporting the movement.

A bit of update since I've moved from Alaska:

On every other Saturday afternoon, members from Off The Chain Bicycle CoOp would volunteer to set workshops for the youth at the Boys & Girls Club, in the Mountain View neighborhood of Anchorage.

One of the regular volunteers is Oscar Avellaneda, a very talented photographer.

Last month, Oscar had a First Friday exhibition, of his photographs he had taken while he volunteered at the youth workshops.

You can see Oscar's work on his sites:

Fantastic work, my friend. Keep on working what's in your heart!
