Caren Hartley is the founder of Hartley Cycles, an award-winning bespoke bicycle company. Each bicycle frame is hand-made using a variety of jewellery and metalwork techniques, reflecting Hartley's background as a trained jeweller and silversmith. She uses her multidisciplinary metalwork skills to produce high-performing bicycles tailored to each rider, often incorporating precious metals and exploring the surface finish of the frames through paint, patination and gilding.
