A Brief History of Wind Chimes

The history of wind chimes is multicultural and extends back to 3000 B.C. The original wind chimes were made of stones, sticks, bone, and other nature material to ward off evil spirits and protect crops from birds. The earliest signs of wind chimes come from Southeast Asia, and they moved to Egypt and the Mediterranean where they were first cast in metals.

The Chinese were the first to design wind chimes for musical and artistic purposes in 1100 B.C. These chimes were still used to ward off evil spirits. Buddhists hung hundreds of wind chimes at their temples and shrines to both ward off evil spirits and beckon benevolent spirits (like fairies? I think so).

Wind chimes didn’t enter western culture until the 1800’s. The popularity of Feng Shui aided the spread of wind chimes to western households, since the soothing sound of the chimes is thought to help the positive flow of Chi.

Wow, I just got a stash of free beads and wire and this project would be great for using some of them. I think it would be nice as a temporary thing, if you could use a garden hook or strong suction and hang it from a window or post, but take it down if weather threatens. Would even be pretty as a windchime type mobile as a pretty decor used inside the home in front of an open window. Great idea!

This is so pretty, and a fun way to use some beads from a bead stash. It doesn't really matter if the beads match. I might not hang this outside because the weather and the animals might destroy it, but I could hang it in my enclosed patio, and listen to it when the windows are open. Thank you for such a nice idea for a spring decoration.

I cannot wait to try this! I probably have most of the items stashed away in my crafting room. I just have to unearth them! Oh well, it was time to clean the room any way. I love windchimes and adding several around the yard will make it that much better!
