stained glass windchimes
What is the best type of stained glass to use for wind chimes? I have just cut 6 pieces of opal glass but it doesn't seem to make very relaxing sounds when each piece strikes one of the others?
I have made many wind chimes and have found the best sound comes from cathedral glass, although none of them are the sound you get from metal wind chimes. I have heard that fused glass wind chimes give a nicer "tinkling" sound.
Make sure you drill a hole in each piece of glass to hang it by. I use Tiger Tail wire with crimp beads for hanging. Also, the sound you get from holding one piece of glass and hitting it against another will not be the same as when they are free hanging and striking each other in the wind.
