I saw these kind of wind chimes at the Forks last year and have been wanting one ever since. They sell for over $100 and I thought to myself, surely we could make one. So the hunt for silver began. Not much luck initially for finding silver inexpensively and so it got put on the back burner. Well, David and I were thrift store shopping on our holidays and he found me all the silver I needed. Then he bought a special drill bit and proceeded to make my wind chime. Total cost came to about $25. I LOVE it! Thanks, honey! Oh, and it sounds really pretty, too!
