My Goodness Juanita! These are awesome! So clever of you to take these recycled treasures to a whole 'nother level of beauty!

I love them all, but especially love the face on that last one! Those eyes remind me of the eyes that follow you in paintings. The expressions on your art are great!

I've got a set of windchimes from silverware that I won at a roundup a few years back. I cannot remember now who it was that made them though.They've held up remarkable well considering they hung during a hurricane. :-)

Phyl, have you got a drill? They look fairly easy to make. I can take some photos for you if you like.

yes. and a dremel too. my drill bits are more household size, but I could get more.

I looked at some on etsy.com not too long ago because I'm in a windchime swap on DG. i need some in a month.

Nannie I've made lots of chimes from silverware. They are really easy. Some of them sound really nice and some not so much. It really depends on the quality of the flatware. I don't think I kept any pictures of them to show you. There are lots of instructions on the web. They are a lot easier to drill than I thought. Even the hollow handled knives. Just have to have the right drill bits and a little glass cutter oil to keep it cool.

Check Goodwills, etc. also. They always have tubs full of silverware at our Goodwills.

Heck sometimes you can find a whole matching set! Big Grin

Our Goodwill store never has anything like that! no electrial appliances...nothing. i think its because this county is so poor.

Yeah, but I'm sure small town living has advantages that big city living doesn't. And when weighing the differences.... well, I'd take Small Town any ol' day! Smiling

Well I did take the photos. And then, with trying to get these places set up, I promptly forgot to come back here and post them. And you forgot to remind me!

So..... Here are the photos of the silverware wind chimes.

There will be several photos.
