After a two month hiatus from fusing I reaquainted myself with my old friend, the kiln, this weekend.  I made a set of bird windchimes-  Thre tings of white with birds and flags-

They measure 8 inches long by 1.25 inches wide and are fastened to a stick I found at Greenlake park here in Seattle.  Viola~

Lovely lovely birds, and I bet they sound lovely too when the wind blows.

Wow, very Paul Klee :-) Its lovely!

I've always been reluctant to make wind chimes, as I'm worried the glass will chip or break in a high wind.
Has that ever happened to one of yours or am I just being paranoid?

SpeedingPullet, I have made several wind chimes and none have broken as of yet.  They are fairly durable if you use two to three layers of base glass.

Awesome, thanks for the advice! :-)

I normally do triple-layer fusing anyway, so I'll have to give it a go.
