Up-Cycled Wind Chime

Created by Alisun Franson from old bicycle gears and chain links diverted from landfills, these upcycled wind chimes bring the positive energy of feng shui and cycling together. In feng shui, metal wind chimes are used to attract beneficial energy to homes and offices, and this composition of cascading links hung from a mandala-like gear is a perfect example. Hang it in a kitchen window, garden or front porch and enjoy the abstract mechanical form and gentle sound as it stirs in the wind. Great for cycling and upcycling enthusiasts alike. Handmade in Venice, CA.

                Expected a little more shine and sun reflection. It was pretty vanilla and does not stand out. Not much musicallity in wind.

                        This upcycled wind chime is a gift for my sister and husband who met on a cross country bike ride. It is a cute wind chime, but is tiny and doesn't have much "chime" to it.

                              Several purchases from uncommongoods, for unique and fun gifts, but this one was very disappointing, overpriced, and not a wind chime at all. This is not a wind chime (period). It's just some recycled bike parts to hang, it does nothing, it is too expensive and is too glorified in the uncommongoods description, and by other supposed reviews. Save your money.

                                Just received this as a housewarming present. Haven't decided yet as to where I will hang it. I have had in in my kitchen window and I love seeing it when I am standing outside in my driveway but I also love it on my back porch. Thinking I may need to order another one! It makes me so happy to see useful items made from recycled bicycle parts. I am also recycling the lovely leather pouch as a holder for my cell phone, keys and money when going for a walk. Thanks for such a unique item.

                                  This is a gift for my brother and his girlfriend who are moving in together. He's into every outdoor activity including biking and she's into feng shui. I bought this early for Christmas for them. I was expecting it to be bigger, but I didn't look to see any dimensions listed. It makes a pretty noise and reminds me of a dream catcher. It came in a nice leather pouch too. But, where the chain links are connected to the gear, it seems it was done without too much care and looks slightly lopsided.
