My dad's favorite Christmas present. Hands down.

My parents live in Kansas and visit me in New England every year or so. The fact that they can now have a wind bell that mimics the sound of the buoys just outside my house is amazing. Great item!More > < Less

I ordered two - one for me and one for a gift. I love the sounds the bell makes and the cardinal is just right for my bird-laden yard.

Still Going Strong

12/8/2017 by Kathryn

Our family was gifted with one of these bells 20+ years ago. It has at least been hanging by our front door all year round for the last 13 years in WA state. We chose to let it rust naturally, but despite its aged appearance, it seems indestructable! The sound is as clear as brand new. Buy this with confidence! Love all the new designs.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.
