Crazy for these wind chimes.  Been firing the kiln like crazy lately to whip up more.. Are we tired of seeing them yet?  Smiley
This one is LONG.  The tings are 11 inches long and about 1 inch wide.

Looks like you're having a lot of fun with these. It's cool you used a transparent glass in one of the long pieces. Smiley

These are so fun!  I've been wanting to make some chimes - I have a few designs in mind that I would love to bring to life, but I worry about how durable they'll be?  What is your experience with them?

GlassKicker,
They are pretty durable, Especially if you make them three layers of glass thick.  The only set I have had break are ones that fell because the string I hung them up with broke and they crashed down.

Good to know - I'll have to give it a go with some thicker components.  Thanks!
