Thank you for supporting handmade and upcycled goods. I appreciate you.


I got some really nice reviews lately and it got me to thinking.... As a person who makes their products with their own two hands I take reviews very personally. What I mean by that is every time my phone alerts me that I have a new review I get nervous to open it. I love what I do and what I make but what if they did not?!?! ahhh! What if I messed up the order? What if? What if? oh - phew - they liked it! Listen, I would not make or sell something that I would not stand behind. I take garbage and try to make it not look like garbage anymore. Better yet I make products you can use - functional products. I guess that is carried over form my days of being a personal trainer - everything is functional! Anyways, thank you all who take the time to write a review, send me a kind email, tell your friends about me and support handmade.
2020 has been quite a year so far. The more we can come together and support each other, the easier time we'll have getting through this.
Stay safe everyone!

About LINKSbyAnnette

On Etsy since 2014

LINKSbyAnnette. Upcycled. Handmade. One-of-a-kind.

Bicycles hold a special place in my heart. I’ve spent thousands of hours on that seat riding, coaching and commuting and have always found beauty in the parts. I love being on my bike, but instead of just riding it, I wanted to use it to create something new. I asked a friend who owns a bike shop to save me some old parts. He handed me a box filled to the brim, I dove in and started to play. LINKS by Annette was born, just like that.

My goal is to transform everyday parts - change the mundane and dirty into something that’s elevated, show-stopping and doesn’t scream “I used to be on a bicycle!”. Since everything I create is made from parts that have been used, each piece is one of a kind; no two gears wear that same way, and I get to take advantage of whatever the bike shops can’t use. I let my imagination run wild to make things I’ve never seen before. I love being creative, I love using my hands, and my heart is happiest when someone loves my products.

I grew up working in the garage with my Dad, and watching him and my Mom haul home hidden gems from the flea market and transform them into refinished additions to our home. Now, all these years later, they help me unload my car full of retired bike parts collected from local shops, and assist in the garage as I create upcycled additions for your home.

Since starting LINKS in 2015, I’ve learned a lot - including welding, weaving, crocheting, sewing, soldering and woodworking - so that I can keep creating more. I care deeply about good design and great quality. I gain inspiration from everything around me and have a soft spot for construction that is smart, clean and cultivated. By playing every day in my studio, creating new things out of old, and using my creativity to keep things out of the landfill, I have found a new way to connect with people and the environment.

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 to making the world a better place, one bike part at a time.
