This is series of chandeliers designed by Carolina Fontoura Alzaga crafted from bike chains. These have been making a stir on a variety of art and design websites, and I’m sure you can see why. They’ve got a really bold elegance, simultaneously delicate and industrial. These pieces transcend the boundaries of utility, both as bike chains and lighting.

Meighan O’Toole’s blog my love for you is a stampede of horses is the first website I ran across that featured them. When you have a free minute, check it out. It focuses on “low-brow, contemporary art” and includes artists bios, studio visits, and portfolios.
