Absolutely lovely!

12/31/2018 by Sharon

This beautiful buoy bell was a hit with my mother for Christmas! The packaging was nice, it arrived before Christmas, and she absolutely loved it! The sound is delightful! This is a well-made product and worth every penny! I'm so happy at how thrilled my mother was with this unique gift! I can never go wrong with gift giving when I buy something from The Grommet!


Great wind chime

Love everything about my wind chime. Sounds wonderful just like you were right there on the ocean. Great craftsmanship! I received it quicker than I thought I would.


Great gift

I’ll confess. I gave one to my wife as a gift because I wanted one. It truly is a great visual addition to our front porch. Sounds as good as it looks.

Wind bell

We are boaters on the inland waterways as well as the Pacific Ocean and love the sound of the buoys in our area. It was cool that we could actually hear the bell sounds before we purchased ours. The man that has created these bells has gone above and beyond to get the sounds right. We love ours and are very pleased with the sound and the quality of the Wind Bell.


A Well Received Christmas Gift

I chose the Cape Cod bell with the red compass. The bell certainly exceeded my expectations, and my husband was pleasantly surprised with his gift. The quality is far superior to anything I have seen, the packaging was perfect, and the compass dangle in red set off the look of the item. The sound truly reminds us of Cape Cod. It will bring us many years of happiness!


More than worth the money

I bought this for my mother for Christmas. As is our custom, I had her pick out the exact bell tone she preferred, so she knew what she was getting but I knew she would completely love it because I don’t like to leave anything up to chance.
It is a beautifully crafted bell with the perfect tone and a wonderful finishing touch of the cardinal fob.


Lovely gift, clear sound

This is such a lovely gift, it really sounds like the buoys from my dad's hometown. It rings a clear sound and is packaged really well for shipping.


Love these

Perfect gift for sailors

These unique sounds are memorable to sailors and vacationers in coastal regions. They are much more special than wind chimes.

The North Country Wind Bells Story

North Country Wind Bells | Buoy 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.
