Welcome to the Skull N Roses Blog

Define: Biker Jewelry (pronunciation: \'bi-ker 'ju-el-re\ noun) – biker jewelry, or rocker jewelry, is less conservative than various types of jewelry and carries more weight and substance. Biker jewelry is easily identifiable owing to its bold statement and trademark masculine look, often created using thick and heavy precious metals, especially sterling silver. It is not uncommon to find a one-pound sterling silver wallet chain made by a famous biker jewelry designer. The combination of leather (sometimes alligator or snake skins), silver and bold designs make up the essential elements of the born to be wild image. The good thing is you do not have to be a biker, or live the biker lifestyle, to wear and appreciate biker jewelry. The biker represents the ability to ride free, to flaunt your own style without boundaries and to live on your own time. Wearing biker jewelry is a statement of freedom and independence.

The biker jewelry of today has evolved from the classic wallet chain and skull ring into highly intricate, custom, handcrafted, beautiful pieces of wearable art made in sterling silver and other precious metals. In the world of biker jewelry, boldness, designs and motifs matter. Commonly used motifs include dogs, eagles, skulls, daggers, roses, snakes, wings, stars, crosses, lion heads, dragons, and flames. Aficionados of biker jewelry treasure good silver designs just like tattoo lovers value great ink designs. Patina on silver provides beautiful black and silver contrasts like no other metals. It can bring out the depth and detail of intricate designs, a look that silver fans adore.

Los Angeles and Tokyo are the biker jewelry capitals of the world. Biker jewelry lovers are known as "silver freaks" in Japan. The first Japanese to admire biker jewelry were young tourists visiting Los Angeles in the 1990's.
