This is our “Whimsical Wishes” singing sun catcher/wind chime. The base is made from a blend of white, green and gold colored polymer clay. There are blue, red, yellow and green pieces of glass fused onto clear glass with a touch of orange/red frit. These pieces are fired in our kiln at various temperatures to assure proper annealing. The five fused glass pieces are attached to the base of the polymer clay with fishing line and beads. (Our wind chime has been out in 30 mile- an- hour gusts of wind and has been ok.) If the wind gets any stronger you should take the wind chime in. The cord is a suede-like material that has a hook attached. Both pieces of the cord go around the branch or item you want to hang the wind chime from and the hook, hooks onto both pieces of the cord forming a secure loop. The piece is designed to have the base tilt so that rain water does not sit on it.
