The windchimes we create are what recycling and being "green" is all about. Since we use mostly vintage or de-constructed items in our creations, they are original and very eco-friendly. "Re-purposed" you might say. The silverware for our chimes is purchased at flea markets and thrift stores. We love going "treasure hunting". To keep our prices reasonable, we purchase items that are heavily tarnished or in need of repairs. We work very hard to polish the silver,design the structure and beading for each set. The pieces are attached with heavy fishing line to enhance the harmonic resonance and last for years to come. The tone achieved by the varied patterns and weights create a soothing musical collaboration that is very pleasing to the ear.

Wear on these custom windchimes will be determined on the location chose to display,the elements and weather conditions. To maintain the silverplated items you may wish to polish from time to time, I polish mine about twice a year.
