Just finished a swap with found/recycled wind chimes.  So fun!! You should check out the whole gallery, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=379325.0;all.  The bird cage was a "found item", the bamboo rods were originally a table runner that had been left out in the rain and the twine had to be thrown away.  The bamboo worked out great and sounded really nice.








Thanks for looking!

Beautiful and very clever! I especially like the brass birds' nest and the glass pendants on the bottoms of the bamboo. But what are the things that look like brass bowls inside the cage?

Very clever. I especially like the nest in the center.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Came with the cage.  I would think the cage would have to be decorative because it is so small, but it has a perch and two bowls for food and water inside.  There are better pics from my swap partner in the gallery.  That pendant at the bottom is from a purse I owned in high school, and it was the perfect weight.  My husband teases me about being a hoarder.

That is a beautiful wind chime!  I didn't know you could use bamboo for the chimes, very clever!  Love it!
