Silverplated Broken Teapot Chimes

I turned this broken old silverplated teapot into a pretty wind chime with lots of glass beads.
I drilled a hole in each corner of the teapot base and attached lengths of heavy weight fishing line.
I strung lots of colored glass beads on the fishing line and attached flattened old silverplate forks and spoons.
I used a few larger glass beads near the bottom for the silverware to clang on.
This old silverplate pie server became the piece that the wind blows and causes the larger glass beads to clang against the silverware.

Lots of colorful glass beads, old vintage silverplate silverware, and a vintage teapot all find new life as a wind chimes!

I, too, make silverware chimes out of old teapots..........I hang them from the handle so they are tilted and then attach crystals to the pouring spout!! Aren't silverware chimes addictive? I've been making them for about 7years and can't seem to stop.
Love your style!!
