cross pictureWorking on THIS new design to add to engraved wind chimes. Created in-house, the decorative cross makes a nice add-on for a sympathy or memorial gift chime engraving. Or even for clery/pastor appreciation day (the second Sunday in October). The Corinthian Bells engraved wind sail is shown here in Patina Green with John 3:16 as the additional text, but you can add anything you’d like! Depending on the size of the wind sail, the character limit is 50, 100 or 150 characters. Give us a call if you’d like text suggestions or a design proof before we engrave – 877-293-6395.

Corinthian Bells 36-inch Wind Chime in Ruby Splash

Carolyn | Monday, September 9, 2013 in Chime info | Comments (0)

cb306rsFor all you folks out there curious about just how red or maroon or ruby or ?? the “Ruby Splash” color really is…here it is! Definitely not brown-red, and definitely not pink-red. Like all the Corinthian wind chimes, the Ruby Splash is a powder-coating color over the aluminum tubes of the chime, as well as the crown/top and the wind sail. All three elements (tubes, crown and sail) are the same, coordinated color. The striker and the strings are black. The small hanging ring at the top is a silver aluminum. The chime pictured is the 36-inch Corinthian Bells wind chime.

The Ruby Splash adds a great pop of color to a shady corner of your garden. Like the Midnight Blue, it’s a special color just right for that certain nook of your yard. If you’re looking for a subtle, blend-into-the background wind chime, the Ruby Splash is not it! It will absolutely attract the eye and ear of most garden visitors.

Other questions on the Ruby color? Any other color? Email/call us!

Personalize Your Wind Chimes with Engraving

Carolyn | Friday, September 6, 2013 in Chime info, Gift info | Comments (0)

So you’re looking at all the wind chimes online and you’re thinking…
How will I ever choose the perfect chime for my wife (or friend, husband, mom, co-worker)?! With so many great U.S.-made wind chimes available (pstt – they really are the best you know!), one of the best ways to select that perfect chime is simply to find a wind chime that you love and have it personalized and engraved just for them.

If you’re not sure what to say, just email or call us. We’ve seen many wonderful messages and would be happy to suggest one for you to consider. We’ve even seen cryptic text messages – just a series of letters – think LOL, but more cryptic. What a fun, inside-joke, personal gift!

Laser engraving is available on all chimes that we sell. It is done on the wind sail (the wooden or metal piece that catches the wind at the bottom of the chime.) Although it takes an extra 1-2 days for engraving, it is absolutely worth that extra time for such a special, personal gift. But if you’re curious about when the engraved chime will ship, by all means, call or email us. We can quickly give you an estimate of shipping and delivery time.

Any other questions on engraving? We’re here to help!

Wind Chimes Love to Accessorize!

Carolyn | Thursday, April 4, 2013 in Chime info, News | Comments (0)

So you have a beautiful wind chime out there by the patio. It rings year-round, as faithful as the mailman. But whenever it snows or rains, you get a little concerned about what the weather will do to the strings and finish on the chime.

Most wind chimes (unless they are uniquely indoor chimes) are made for year-round, outdoor use. But weather will take a toll on any chime, no matter the brand. For the high-quality metal chimes, the wear will be minimal. But for chimes that have wooden components (top, striker and wind sail), the wear will be evident more quickly. And while that weathered look can be beautiful (think the rich patina of wood antiques), it might not be exactly what you want for your wind chime!

These weather domes, designed for bird feeders, are the perfect accessory for protecting your wind chime. A customer gave us the tip for the domes (Thanks, Hat!), since he orders one for every chime he buys. So we bought one, tested it for several months, and indeed, discovered that they are just right for wind chimes! And of course, we love that they’re manufactured right here in the U.S., by Aspects, Inc.

Available in 12 and 18-inch diameters, these domes will provide that extra protection and care that your oh-so-lovely wind chimes will thank you for! Coming very soon – you’ll find them under the Accessories tab at BuyChimes.
