Handmade item

Materials

aluminum, copper wire, glass marble, glass orb, glass sphere, Apache Tears, obsidian

This unique windchime features a mix of 72 iridescent teal and black glass marbles, individually hand-wrapped in solid copper wire with an enamel finish (to retard tarnish), that sparkle and shine in the sun. The top frame is soid aluminum so there's nothing to rust. It is accented with 8 natural pieces of Apache Tears.

The 8 aluminum chimes are pieces of industrial scrap. They are the discarded ends left when a manufacturer cuts flat stock to length. I clean them and drill a hole but, other than being spiffed up a bit, they are exactly as they came off the line. These little cast-offs make a gentle sound (think raindrops, not monsoon) so they won't disturb the neighbors!

Legend tells that a band of Apache warriors, having fought until their arrows were gone, were backed up onto a high bluff. Rather than be taken captive, the warriors flung themselves off the cliff. When their women came to mourn, their tears froze as they struck the ground becoming Apache Tears.

Apache Tears are said to relieve grief and sorrow, to bring good luck and to aid in giving and accepting forgiveness. They are a type of obsidian (volcanic glass) and are found only in Arizona. Every chime comes complete with a "cheat sheet" that summarizes it's metaphysical properties.

As these are natural pieces of Apache Tears, the sizes and shapes will vary from windchime to windchime.

***Need something with a more personal twist ? Special stones or colors for a birthday, anniversary, wedding or other occasion? Just let me know and I'll try my best to accommodate! ***

Overall width of this piece is 3.5" and the length is 27".

FAQs

Yes, I do combine orders whenever possible. If you want an exact estimate of a combined shipping cost, please give me your zip code and let me know which items. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
All of the items that I have listed are ready to go so your purchase will ship within one business day (and, quite often, the same day).
Most certainly! Just let me know what color marble(s) and/or
stone(s) tickle your fancy and I'll try my best to meet your needs.
Just let me know in the "Note to seller" section and I'll add a note to your gift (I've become fairly proficient with Print Shop!). Gift wrapping can be a little trickier but if you'd like a little spiffier presentation, I'll give it my best shot.
the term "free shipping" is a misnomer; somebody has to pay for it. As I price my items to allow for a modest profit, I can't afford to absorb the shipping. I also don't want to raise my prices to cover shipping expenses which would give an artificial "free shipping". Plus, when offering free shipping, it negates the price reduction that normally comes with multiple purchases combined into one package. Rest assured that I only charge my customers what the USPS charges me and that I will refund overages. In my experience, this is the fairest and most transparent method for calculating shipping costs.
