The history of wind chimes finds its origins in prehistoric times. Hanging objects from a branch and watching them sway is an ancient pleasure. Early wind chimes may have been as simple as hanging seashells or stones that clashed together. They create a soothing sound that enhances the area and bring a sense of calm. Simply hang the chime in your home or garden and enjoy the soft tinkling sounds it makes as the wind blows through it. A lovely addition to any living space indoors or out. Easy to hang with metal hanging ring. Aluminum/acrylic.
