This wind chime hangs right outside my shop and is made from a huge old bolt, a couple of washers and those wrenches that come with your tools when you buy them. Over the years Ive amassed dozens of them and decided they needed a new life. They sound REALLY beautiful...and no amount of wind is going to hurt them!

Thanks for sharing.

Seeing this work of art sway makes me ponder of the soul who used these. Thank you.

Love this chime. I once hung all sorts of old tools and nuts and bolts from a tree in our old yard. Most people thought I was off my rocker, but I loved hearing the beautiful tinkly sounds they made in the wind every time I was out in the yard.
