We found these guys last year at Interbike with all their cycling inspired gifts. Earth Studio out of Moab, Utah, carries handmade metal art and decor for just about everyone. We especially like their cycling Christmas ornaments, and this year they have some new designs for you. They also have Tri, Running, and Kayaking ornaments, jewelry, and decor (they’ll even make trophies!) The ornaments come in groups of 3 for $13.95. You can feel good that they’re handmade in the USA from a group of artisans that get their inspiration from their surroundings, and what better surroundings than Moab? Click ‘more’ for some pics of their inspiration and process…
Getting some inspiration.
Designs are cut out of sheets of steel. Here’s an up close look of machining process.
These are freshly cut and will be on their way to the grinder.

Different color finishes that will be coated with automotive grade sealer for a durable, long lasting ornament.
