OMG I'm so glad you all like it, THANKYOU !!!
It's just one of my ceramic experiments guys, I made some clay pebbles ages ago. The intention was to stack them threaded onto a steel rod, so I pushed a hole through them but, silly me, forgot to make the holes large enough to allow for shrinkage when I fired them. So,the holes were so small they couldn't go on the rod. They were pushed aside and forgotten until I was restringing some windchimes and it clicked! I strung them on fishing line and hung them in the tree (as you do!)

Yes, this is excellent...

Very clever Jen.... You'd never believe they were clay, they've obviously been taken over by a bit of garden when you 'pushed them aside' !! (Poor pebbles :-( )

AND you like windchimes ?????? Spoookkkyyy !! :-))

7 Sep, 2009

 

A fortune...yes please TT !
They're aging nicely now San, I'm going to put some moss on them, see if it'll take....people always do a double take on them because being on fishing line you can't make out (until you look closely) how they're hangin there. they look like they're suspended in mid air! He He !
Luuuurve windchimes Sue, especially bamboo- mellow!
