Bike chains have been given a second life in this amazing set of recycled bicycle chain chandeliers designed and created by Carolina Fontoura Alzaga.

Having lived in both Mexico and Brazil, Alzaga creates these bicycle chain chandeliers out of her Los Angeles based studio in a series project she has named CONNECT. The  chandeliers can be purchased through her shop, and come in a multitude of designs that bike lovers are sure to enjoy.  Alzaga recently sat down with the team at the Etsy Blog to discuss her work, which also documented through the video interview below.
