Love at first clang


I absolutely love my Wind Bell. I've vacationed on Cape Cod for 30+ years. I always miss the found of the bouy bells when I get home. Now I have them right here in my backbyard! They are not only beautiful sounding, but they are a piece of art as well!

I may be ordering another as a Christmas gift.

Im enjoying the Wind Bell I ordered.


I live on the dry side of Washington. But, I was born on the wet side and still going over to Puget Sound on the water and listening to the bells there.More > < Less


Another hit


I have one to my SO for her birthday. She loved it so much we decided to get one for her daughter and son in law as a house warming gift. Well, they also love it and truly appreciate the thought that went into it. It's not something you set out to look for so when you do come across it you think "Wow! What a great idea." And you just know so many special people on your gift list that would appreciate it. Because of its unique character and style,what impresses most is the thought put into searching for something special. You don't know what you're looking for but when you see it, well I guess to can say is like a bell (bouy bell....lol) goes off.
Thanks Grommet and thanks again to Mari. If she wasn't so wonderful at helping with my first bell purchase, I never would have got a second..

Absolutely Worth It!


When I get a thought in my head, it doesn't always go away quickly. My handmade (New Hampshire) wind chimes have finally died after about thirty years and in looking for a replacement, found these Made-in-Maine-by-Mainers buoy bell. I researched the company and its legit.

Why did I buy from The Grommet? Well, their price is as good as the manufacturer's and they offered me free shipping.

I got the Camden Reach bell, a throwback to hearing that bell in my childhood in the seventies. The really cool thing about The Grommet is that I could listen to the individually tuned bells before I decided on one.

This is a quality, lifelong handcrafted artisanal gem. If I needed two, I'd buy another one immediately! Thank you The Grommet and North Country Wind Bells!

Great gift


I bought this as a gift and have not given it yet, however from my point of view, the quality of this wind chime surpassed my expectations. This will last for many years even in the harsh NEw Englan weather. The chime is lovely and crossing my fingers the receiver enjoys this as much as I doMore > < 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.
