Buoy Bell

by

I was given a North Country Wind Bell for my birthday and it was such a nice gift. I have spent many hours on the water, and these Buoy Bells are great reminders of time spent on the bay and waterways. I liked it so much, I bought one for my brother and his wife for their Anniversary. They are both water lovers also. They loved it.More > < Less

Beautiful in looks and sound

by

I love the way it looks and really like the sound. However, I haven't found a place to hang it yet where it will catch the wind and ring more.

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.
