Handmade Alpaca Cutlery Windchimes
These wind chimes are made in the spirit of recycling, out of antic German silver (also called alpaca or nickel silver) cutlery. The forks and spoons are flattened and twisted as only Jany knows how!
Size: 82-105 cm
Before aluminium came on the scene alpaca was the popular material of the cutlery industry in the years of the 18-19th centuries. It counted as a rather great achievement, the factories stamped every piece with their own mark.
Spoonbells are a truly charming form to revive our grandmother's everyday items so that they can live on with us. The nice silver color of the alpaca (which is known in many different names in different countries) is due to the nickel, extensibility comes from copper and zinc gives its melting ability.
But from our point of view it’s beautiful chiming sound is what makes the alpacca wind chimes interesting, it reminds you mostly of the churchbells at noon, and in the case of wind chimes that is a really creditable attribute.
It always astonishes me how the fork’s four branches in an artist’s hand has so unbelievably rich potential lurking in it. Sometimes it undulates like water, confines hearts inside itself, or the neverending knot of tibet comes before us when a breeze blows.
If you choose the wind chimes with a tealight holder, be sure to use it!
