Wind Chimes have their origins in Indian wind bells which were suspended on the corners of pagodas to scare away evil spirits.
Our chimes are long and made with 1-1/2” pipes, so the sound is unbelievable, full of long-lasting, multi-toned resonance that’s just beautiful!
When played by the wind or children, a single chime produces a fundamental sound with a variety of additional overtones, so when our chimes start moving, many, many different tones and overtones are produced, making this instrument sound truly magical.
Depending on where they're hung, when they start ringing, Wind Chimes can indicate a change in wind direction or velocities, so children will always know when air is in motion. This, of course, can lead to imaginative stories about wind elves and fairies ringing the chimes, or to discussions about wind and why the air moves, or about clouds moving, birds in flight, kites flying, and so on.
These silver-colored Wind Chimes are a beautiful, outdoor musical instrument that can be hung anywhere. They can be played both by the wind and by children gently brushing the pipes.
Because each is hand made, and none is ever made exactly the same, placing several of these in different places on your Natural Playground will provide endless, beautiful entertainment for children and adults alike.
Made to hang from anything such as a tree branch or any other support off the ground, installation is very easy. Endlessly delightful!
