About DinnerTimeChimes

Sales 497
On Etsy since 2007

Forks and Spoons, oh my!

I started my business, Dinner Time Chimes in 1992. At that time my parents helped me make the windchimes, which I sold to friends and family. All these years later, I’m still polishing silverplated silverware for windchimes that I am selling via my own website, Etsy shop, Facebook and local stores in addition to friends and family.

ξ About chimes:
Each piece used in the chimes is carefully selected from area estate sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. The activities of the past are reflected in each piece. Any slight flaws in the silverware only add to the charm. They are hand polished & shaped to create the beautiful chimes that are available to you.

Additional policies and FAQs
ξ Caring for your Silverware:
Generally speaking if you use your keychain daily, the frequent handling of it will keep it from tarnishing. Should you wish to polish the keychain, you can follow the same instructions given below for the chimes.
Depending on the air/weather the chime is exposed to, it will over time tarnish. If you wish to restore the shiny finish, I suggest Wright's Silver Cream. It can be found locally at many retailers, not only will it restore the finish it has been proven to prevent tarnish longer than other polishes.

ξ Grandmother's Silverware:
We love to make custom items for you from heirloom silverware. It's a wonderful way for the entire family to rememember her!
