Repurposed Upcycled Bicycle Rim Pendant Hanging Light

I got my hands on some bicycle parts from a local shop that was discarding them. I jumped into the up"cycling" mindset with this racing rim first and ended using a reproduction Edison filament bulb.
  • The Edison bulb adds so much charm the whole piece.
  • I used small cake/bundt pans/molds on top and bottom to bring the center parts together.
  • I love the original graphics around the rim.
  • The cake molds house all the guts that brought electricity to this rim.
