Who doesn't love the sound of a windchime! And these upcycled silverware chimes have a very pleasing sound whether you place in your garden or by your kitchen window. Four spoon bowls (flattened or curved) or fork tines combined with one long central "clapper" hang from a curled dinner fork.
Materials used and Care Information
The silverware is good quality old silverplate sourced from auctions and estate sales.
They are strung on 80 lb monofilament fastened with crimped lead.
They will slowly tarnish over time. A small care package is included with each chime. It includes a small piece of specialized steel wool that can be used again and again. It polishes them up quite quickly after which you can coat with car polish (any brand will do) or a clear lacquer (Tremclad) or leave until you choose to use the 4 O steel wool again.
