Key Wind Chimes

The key (sic) to getting a good sound from key wind chimes is proper spacing of the keys so they bounce into each other enough to create a pleasing sound but not so much that the sound is deadened.

You can accomplish this by laying the keys out on a table with the widest part of each key slightly overlaping the adjacent key. Then place the stick or dowel you’ll be hanging the keys from along the top of the keys and mark where each key should hang.

There are various ways to hang the keys. Here, I have used thin monofilament chord and cut slight grooves in the piece of driftwood to keep the line from sliding out of place.
