{Favorite Coastal Find} Harbor Buoy Bells

Jim & May Davidson live on the craggy Maine Coast. In the small town of Round Pond they, their family & neighbors craft wind bells that echo the distinctive & familiar tones of coastal & harbor bells.

For many years, Jim, like his neighbors, worked as a lobster man. He spent countless hours on the water listening to pounding surf & the constant warning of bell buoys. 

After a time, it occurred to him that others might also enjoy the reassuring sound of bell buoys. He began recording the sounds of bells where he hauled lobster traps, & then eagerly sought other bells in the region. 
These are the sounds that Jim Davidson lived with, trusted and grew to love deeply during his years spent working on and around the water. They are sure to evoke similar feelings in all who hear them.

Each Harbor Buoy Bell includes your choice of wind catcher...19 styles to be exact!

Every bell is designed to hang outdoors year-round, & will not twist, tangle or break. Even hung far from the ocean, their response to a gentle breeze carries pleasant reminders of ocean swells & the constant vigil sounded by coastal & harbor bells.
