My sister is a junkie too!!!! She and my brother-in-law own a restaurant on the Outer Banks of NC. Being a junkie too, but not a big fan of the computer, I wanted to post her super cool windchime. She uses liquor bottles from the restaurant. My b-i-l uses a wet saw to cut off the bottom of the bottles. My sister then strings beads and sea shells for the "chime" part. Not sure how she threads the wire thru the cork. This bottle is from some sort of tequila, but any kind of bottle can be used. She sells them in her restaurant and they fly out of there like hotcakes. I have mine hanging on a shepards hook in my backyard.
