This wind chime is justWow! Its absolutely beautiful; and with the number and variety and sizes of glass, the sound is just awesome! Its made from at least 140 different glasses (I lost track after 140) crafted into 163 pieces that have been ground with an ultra-fine grinding wheel to eliminate chipping; the corners slightly rounded, and the edges lightly beveled to remove any sharp edges.The chimes are strung on nylon coated stainless steel beading wire with Tibetan silver beads. The base is made from a solid pine round thats been stained and polyd, zinc coated eye screws and chain, and galvanized metal jump ring and hook. The width of the wood round is about 5; and the length is about 31.5, including the jump ring. This piece is pretty heavy over 4½ pounds. As an FYI, I hung it from a cup hook and left it for several days to see if the hook would hold its weight.
Although it may appear somewhat delicate, since its made of glass, its not. I craft all of my pieces (unless Ive noted otherwise) to be hung outside and withstand "normal" winds.
I leave mine out year round and have never had even a chip in the glass. Glass does become more brittle when cold. Thus, you may want to bring it in during icy/snowy/windy weather, if you are concerned about it.
Breakage may occur if the piece is hung near a stationary object, such as a wall (or dropping it on the floor oops), and a strong wind bangs it up against it. Thank you for taking a look at this wind chime. Be sure to check out my other listings for wind chimes and glass kits.
