MapleXO is one of the first makers we personally purchased when Independent Goods was a far away dream. We are proud to carry MapleXO who took their love for skateboarding and translated that into handcrafted, upcycled products.
How the Frankie earrings are made: They take old skateboard wheels clean the heck out of them and sliced them up. They are then sanded, dyed, and hung them from beautiful brass disks with a sterling silver ear post.
Behind the name Frankie: The name of these earrings was inspired by the first person to introduce the polyurethane wheel into skateboarding, Frank Nasworthy

MapleXO takes pride in being the original creators of recycled skateboard jewelry. They utilize recycled skateboards and industrial skateboard waste in all of their jewelry and accessories. MapleXO is fueled by their passion to give back to skateboarding by reducing its carbon footprint, and credit skateboarding for the way it has opened their eyes to potential in what others consider garbage.
