The last time I was at Canton I saw wind chimes made from silver tea pots, tea cups and silverware. I wanted to make one but didn't find a tea pot. This time I saw this silver gravy boat and thought it would make a great wind chime. It did make a great one! I put it together last night with fishing string and beads. All I had to do was drill holes into the silver pieces. Not a problem with my dremel. I hung it this morning in my backyard. My son said it look like ghetto redneck trash. So much for his opinion on! I lOVE it!!!
