"Chandelier" o' Junk

Maybe you're doing the cure and have a big pile of unwanted stuff in your outbox, with no one who'd like to take it off your hands. If you'd rather not toss it, we're all about this chandelier/installation seen recently at the Woonbeurs, a lifestyle and interior design fair held in Amsterdam.

You could make your own using an old bicycle wheel (sans tire) and some type of fishing line or twine. And we could be wrong, but it looks like some of the bottles are wired similarly to these milk jug lamps we've seen before. We love the brightness of the colors as well as the use of old plastic bottles and other items that would probably have ended up in a dump somewhere otherwise. So, would you hang this in your home, or does it belong in the recycling bin?
