Whoa. So much art speak in the video. It all could have been summed up with: “look how cool these old bike parts look in a new arrangement.”

The chandeliers are really beautiful, but scavenging the parts to build bicycles would have been a real means to her supposed end of saving the planet than making some lights for rich folk.

They really are pretty, though.

I’ve been looking for some chandeliers for my dungeon. These just might fit the bill.
