Taking a walk in the woods ~ one of my favorite pastimes.
At the top of this chime is a piece of a natural tree branch from my woods, that I have sun dried, bleached and sealed. Then strung on a piece of natural twine with a hoop at the top.
* This would be considered an indoor chime *
The chimes are suspended from the branch and consist of
~ 9 stained glass leaves of different colors, opaque and transparent greens, organic looking opaque of beiges, brown, tans.
~ A real turkey feather adorns the top of the twine topped with wooden beads and a handmade paper organic looking bead.
~ one long metal chime
~The bottom holds a very organic looking stone bead.
~ The glass is strung together using different sizes and shapes of beads.
~ A total of 116 beads are in this chime consisting of,
amber glass beads (tree sap), green glass beads (buds), red glass beads (berries),
organic tan (nuts), one real African nut bead, black glass beads, real stones, handmade paper organic looking beads, a blue bird, a semi precious tumbled stone, along with wooden beads.
The total hanging measurement for the chimes is 15-1/2 inches long and 10-1/2 inches at its widest point.
I hand cut and all of the glass, sand it to perfection, and then drill them.
My name is etched in the glass.

Thank you for the interest in my art.
Have a great day,
Always take care in the placement of glass art outdoors.
Make sure it is positioned in a sheltered cove or low to the ground sheltered next to a bush, keeping it safe from harmful winds and harsh elements.
Please bring inside for enjoyment when the weather turns to give you many years of enjoyment.
