Fantastic Sound!


I am so pleased with this 'Buoy Bell' -- the look and the sound! Because I am originally from the Seattle area, I naturally picked the Puget Sound chime. Thank you for offering this wonderful product--a 'must have' for wind chime lovers!!More > < Less

Good Buy


This is my kind of wind chime! It doesn't ring at every slight breeze and when it does ring it has a beautiful sound. To me it's a masculine wind chime. Now, if the man in your life likes wind chimes buy him one of these. I recommend it!!More > < Less

About North Country Wind Bells

Sound Of The Sea

Jim Davidson was a lobsterman in Maine for years. Buoy bells chiming as he hauled in his lobster traps was a favorite sound—equal parts peaceful and melodic, and an indicator that he was safely close to harbor.

Jim was so enamored with the sound that he and his wife, May, began creating their own wind chimes to capture it. Their North Country Wind Bells are made at home in Maine and capture the tones of over 20 coastal and harbor bells.

Each location has a distinctive sound—from Bar Harbor to San Francisco—that Jim and May have carefully recreated. They started by recording as many local bells as they could. They then fine-tuned their own bells by ear until the sound was just right.

The bells and windcatchers are crafted from recycled steel by many of the locals in the Davidsons' small town, and should last for at least 20 years of coastal-inspired sound.
