Beaded & Wire Wrapped Sea Glass Wind Chimes

There aren’t many things I enjoy more than “playing” with sea glass. One of my newest creations is sea glass wind chimes. Even though they were a bit of a challenge at first,  I have enjoyed creating them and they have been a big hit with my customers. I have sold them at the last two craft fairs I attended.  At the first fair which was outside, a lovely breeze was a big help in getting them a lot of attention, they sound beautiful!

These beaded and wire wrapped sea glass wind chimes are a fun way for me to use what is called “craft” glass. (Hmmm, I think that grades of sea glass will be a topic for another post.)  Let’s just say that this craft glass isn’t the best for jewelry, it’s not as nicely smoothed or frosted as jewelry quality, but it’s still nice glass.

Very important components of all the wind chimes I create is colorful beading and color coordinated jump rings.

The first sea glass wind chimes I created were with frosted white sea glass wrapped with multi colored wire with multi colored beaded sections and multi colored jump rings. They sold out at the second craft fair I displayed them at. I have also created sea glass wind chimes using bottle necks and rims in different colors, white, brown, green and blue.  These have been very popular, especially with sea glass aficionados who know that sea glass rims are a rarity.

Living in Maryland, the next logical color was purple, of course…

I always enjoy and am honored to create a custom piece and one sea glass wind chime I created was pink. It was white sea glass wrapped with pink and fuschia wire with sections of glitzy pink and pearl beads and coordinating pink jump rings. This had been ordered by a sea glass loving Mother for her daughter, who was just weeks away from the birth of her baby girl. A VERY special sea glass wind chime indeed!

If you are interested in a sea glass wind chime please contact me.  I can create them in a wide variety of colors and color combinations.

This is a picture of the wind chimes being created, the one on the left is purple, and the pic shows the purple suspension top,  the one on the right is multi-colored and had a turquoise suspension top.

Hi, my name is Cathy Kelly! When I was introduced to sea glass I didn't know that it would become such a passion for me. Whether it's walking on a beach or wading in a river searching for sea glass and pottery, creating jewelry and crafts, searching out the history of a piece of glass or pottery, or marketing and selling online and at craft fairs, I enjoy every aspect to it's fullest.
