Anyone who has spent any amount of time on Lost Cowboy knows I love art and I love bicycles. So, when those things come together, it’s the perfect find. Which is why I fell in love with Links by Annette when I spotted her at an art fair in Chicago earlier this summer. Annette makes creative home goods and art from bicycle parts and it is all seriously cool.

About Links by Annette:

“Upcycled, recycled, reused, repurposed – call it what you want. I create unique, high-quality, modern industrial home goods, décor and wearable products. Everything is handmade in Chicago with a passion for cycling and functional design, a meticulous eye for detail, and a dedication for making the world a better place, one bike part at a time.”

Links by Annette have many great items to choose from like her signature coasters bordered with recycled bike chains (above right): “These fun, functional conversation pieces are best-selling gifts and keep your table free from sweating glassware. Each wooden coaster is wrapped with upcycled bicycle chain that has been treated to resist rust.”
