There is something that is so relaxing and peaceful about the sound of bamboo wind chimes. These outdoor ornamental items are handmade Bali products by artisans that have often practiced the craft for generations. The specific material used to create them may include traditional material like bamboo, wood or it can also include other metals as well.
The styles of bamboo wind chimes produced on the island have changed with the demand. Many are sold as Feng Shui chimes and may include specific combinations of chimes in patterns. The result is a melodious, soothing sound that is not metallic or jarring.
Of course like all chimes, wind power is needed to create the sound. Placing the chimes in specific areas of the yard or garden will allow you to create areas of relaxation. Due to the placement of the individual chime, wind movement will cause chimes to create sound as they bump against one another. Picking your location can maximize this effect.

Making bamboo wind chimes
Traditional chimes from Bali are made of bamboo. As a fast growing and environmentally friendly wood, bamboo is considered a good sustainable product. Bamboo of different diameters is cut to set lengths. Then, one side of the bamboo is removed to create differences in the sounds.
Each bamboo wind chime is tuned by hand to just the right pitch. Unlike a metal chime that almost rings, bamboo wind chimes have a denser, more musical sound. Different chimes set next to each other in a pattern create multiple resonant tones.
The tops of the chimes may be a horizontal piece of bamboo or half bamboo. In this style, the chime is a rectangular shape. Round shaped chimes often use a half or a full coconut as the focal point on top.
Weather resistant bamboo
Bamboo is a durable natural wood and is very lightweight. This is perfect for easily mounting the chime in any location or in any climate. However, to ensure the chimes last for years, each piece of bamboo needs to be treated. A bamboo chime should be treated with a varnish to resist both insects as well as moisture.
This varnish may be applied after the bamboo is decorated with a stain. Some chime woodworkers may leave the bamboo a natural color with a clear varnish. Slight blemishes or color variations in the wood just add to the uniqueness of each wind chime.

Some artisans in Bali also produce metal styles of chimes. They are based on traditional patterns but instead of bamboo chimes they use aluminum or other lightweight metals. Wood is still used as the head of the chimes and is often teak.
This style of wind chime is perfect for a larger garden or area. They are highly resistant to any damage even in the harshest outdoor climates.
Other types of unique chimes from Bali include those crafted in the shape of fish or animals. Painting on each individual chime can also create a one of a kind garden art item.
