Beach Crafts - Wind Chimes

Many have found that the right combination of melodic sounds produced by a wind chime go well with many environments.

Your sea glass as well as sea shells added to a wind chime makes it pleasing to the eyes as well as to the ears.

Beach Crafts - Wind Chimes

Steps to making sea and glass wind chimes:

1. Shop around for a wind chime that produces a sound you like.

Since sea glass is solid, it will not by itself make a real wind "chime" sound.

2. Once you find a wind chime that you like, you can replace some of the strands with sea glass and sea shell strands. 

You might want to leave several strands of the chimes themselves next to each other so that they do bump together to produce that pleasing music in a light breeze.

If it is not the sound or tone of tubular or other wind chimes that you are looking for, you may decide to make a sun catcher or mobile instead.

Just adapt the above instructions for the sea glass wind chimes project to fit your sun catcher or sea glass mobile.

Our viewers have submitted examples of sea glass wind chimes ranging from easy to more difficult wind chimes.

Even a more basic wind chime made from beach glass provides a conversation piece and a nice way to use your beach treasures.

Here is a good example of a simple chime from a viewer in Massachussetts.

For how this was made, as well as comments from readers, see "From the Sea Chimes."

A somewhat more complex but quite easy-to-make sea glass wind chime is this contribution by Loretta from Lake Forest, California.

For how this was made, as well as comments from readers, see "Sea Glass Wind Chimes1."

Again, Loretta uses sea glass and other objects from the beach and shop to create her attractive chimes.

For how this was made, as well as comments from readers, see "Sea Glass Wind Chimes II."

Christine Rogers from Puerto Penasco, Mexico, has contributed several wind chimes made from the beach glass she has found.

Christine incorporates fishing tackle, glass beads, driftwood, and other objects in her varied assortment of sea glass crafts and designs.

Hi David,

I received your sea glass hearts and I LOVE them all.

Thank you so much for sending the extra hearts.

I was so touched by your thoughtfulness and I appreciate you sharing these special gifts from the sea! Hope to see more of your sea glass soon!

Thanks again,


Hi David,

Just wanted to tell you thank you for the monthly sea glass newsletter. I love it, and look forward to it.

Thanks again to you and your wife.


Hi David,

I just wanted to let you know I appreciate receiving my sea glass order so quickly.

Love the flowers, wave crest & rare pastels and the little extra surprise....you made my day!!


I am so fascinated by sea glass - I can’t believe at 70 I found a new hobby.

Thanks for the opportunity to search and read up on this!


Your site made me so happy tonight! Why?

Many happy memories swirled back into my mind when I saw your pictures. I spent my childhood on the beaches of Cape Cod and we spent many happy hours looking for sea glass."


It is a pleasure and refreshing to meet people in the sea glass community that are willing to share! I got some great tips from your site. It was wonderful not to spend my entire vacation looking for a beach. Thanks again!

Hi David and Lin.

Love your sea glass web site. I enjoy your picture of the month and intend on winning at least once.

I have been collecting and creating things from sea glass for over twenty years. I find my sea glass on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio.

Thank you for sharing your treasures with me. Yours truly,

Cathy Lincks

Just wanted to let you know (since you were so helpful) that I won a blue ribbon (1st place) in Gifford Middle School Science Fair in the category of Environmental Science with my topic - Effect of a Florida Tidal Inlet on Wrack Line Sea Glass Volume.

Now, I will compete in the Regional Science Fair which will take place on Feb 2nd. My mom and dad and I had a lot of fun searching for sea glass.


Mary Hyde

I am beginning to be a typical sea glass hunter - always looking for fun places to find glass!

Hi David and Lin,

I have shared your website with my other sea glass fanatic friends over the last couple of years and they love it as much as I do.

Yours is my favourite website of all time and the very best website I've seen for everything sea glass.

I can lose myself for hours in your website. Dangerous place!

Anne O, Toronto

Thanks so much for the information.

I visited Carbon Beach today.

Very small and few people but a nice supply of glass just as you stated.



Hi Lin and David,

I have come to sea glass via my shell collecting and am finding it very addictive too. Last year I found a glass bottle stopper which was a thrill.

I really enjoy the newsletter and can easily spend an evening getting lost in the stories and comments.


Anne Cram

Just wanted to thank you for all of your helpful information.

The sea glass community is filled with people who guard their secret beaches so it is refreshing to see that there are people who are willing to share.

It's so useful for those of us that don't live near a beach and travel to find our glass.

The information posted here lets us spend more time enjoying our adventure rather than wasting time looking for a great spot

Thanks again,

Anonymous Viewer

Gee, my heart races when I hear about all these marvelous finds.

Kudos to this wonderful site and for those who share their finds.

You've got a friend in me,

Norma Myrphy

Ann & I have caught your infectious seaglass fever! Hope to cross paths again soon.

Happy and safe traveling!
