Description

Unique mirror with oval frame from bicycle chain parts

This mirror was a big patience training for me. But my effort was crowned by satisfaction from the aesthetic qualities of the surface I aimed to create.

The goal of this project was to create an decorative looking surface from bicycle chain links. To up-cycle the material.

I was planning this project for a very long time. It all begun with this beautiful oval frame, well known in many households in my home country. An old wooden frame found at garage sale was eager for a new life - new decoration - new fresh contrasting approach. I liked the strong shape bud also the rounded profile of the frame. I wanted to create something special with the surface.

The first though part was to remove the rustic but unusable gypsum surface. Horror scene - the screaming grinder and workshop full of dust. Nevermind, it was worth it! Clean wooden structure was revealed and then dark stained and oiled.

The second though part was to win the bicycle links from the chain. I bought a special tool for it - the chain breaker for removing the rivets from the chain. Piece by piece I took apart several bicycle chains. You can see it in my very first etsy shop update:

The final touch was done by my signature decorative technique using bike chain elements individually and densely nailed into the wooden frame. The structure of chain elements created a new industrial and contemporary skin over the historical wooden core. Assembled chain pieces were in final polished for a shine and gloss. Using this technique a highly decorative yet luxury and in a way a diesel/industrial surface came into being. The mirror can be hung both - vertically or horizontally - in rustic/vintage or contemporary and clean interiors. I plays with the light, sometimes it looks like an armor, sometimes like the snake skin.
