When Denise Relke
was sidelined from running due to a broken ankle, she
created a running pendant
in her silversmithing class. The pendant served as a talisman
to ensure that
Denise’s ankle would heal and she would be back on her feet again soon, running
her favorite trails.

wasn’t the only one inspired by her pe
ndant, and soon her original design grew
into a booming business, Sporty Jewels. Denise translates her love of sport into
sterling silver and 14kt gold pendant charms, earrings, bracelets and rings honoring runners, cyclists and triathletes alike.
