Wind chime made from silver forks and spoons - blue and white glass beads - re purposed garden decoration art - napkin holder - garden art
We have been experimenting with some new shapes and are proud to offer this new style of artistic wind chime. We have hand bent the forks and the center clapper. The forks are attached to a napkin ring.
It measures approximately 7" wide x 22 1/2" long (this measurement includes the length of the top hook for hanging). With this chime you will hear a bold sound, along with a lot of movement from the center clapper attached to a long string of beads. It is not at all what you would expect out of flatware. If you were to close your eyes and listen, there would be no mistaking it for the true wind chime that it is.
Just as a tid bit of extra information. We take a great deal of pride in re-purposing and up-cycling, and this wind chime is a true example of utilizing old forgotten flatware to it's fullest. Of course, whoever originally purchased these silver plated pieces would have intended their use to be on an an elegant dinner table and over time they were probably stored in a cabinet to treasure as family heirlooms. Oh, to just think of the history! We in turn purchased them for the next step in their journey, which would be to continue their legacy as works of art. We do strive to purchase as many of our supplies as possible from our local vendors and community, and so as we see it...we have brought these pieces full circle and in turn have supported our local small business economy!

.......... DURABILITY ..........
We test each and every one of our wind chimes our own yard, and although nothing is meant to withstand a Texas tornado, they have been proven to withstand the breezes and wind that we have here in Central Oregon. As this piece is ceramic, it will require more gentle treatment and it would be best to not allow freezing water to sit inside as it may cause it to crack.
We use coated stainless steel wire and crimps to attach each piece which accounts for its strength and durability - where others simply use fishing line and knots that easily break down from the UV rays of the sun. We only use glass, crystal, or natural stone beads ...never any plastic ... and we do support our local vendors for the majority of our bead purchases.
