Celebrate your inner hippie with this beautiful bronze-tube Peace chime.
What is now known as the Peace Sign was originally designed in 1958 as the logo for Britain’s Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Made from a blending of the semaphores for N (flags held at 4 and 8 o’clock) and D (flags held at 12 and 6 o’clock), it migrated to the US in the ’60s and gained a broader definition as a symbol of peace. It has become one of the most widely known symbols in the world.
This Peace Chime incorporates the peace symbol in a stunning flame-finished stainless steel windcatcher. In keeping with the theme, the wind chime is musically-tuned to the notes of the second line (“…and let it begin with me”) from the popular hymn “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”
- Tuned to notes from the hymn Let There Be Peace on Earth
- Teak finish ash wood, 6 bronze aluminum tubes, flamed stainless steel windcatcher

- In 1979, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill; Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today
“Chanting, hymns and drumming have been used for thousands of years in spiritual practices. Many acoustic instruments, such as drums, rattles, bells, and bowls, are used in a variety of ways to clear energy and effect change. Healthy organs and other body parts resonate in harmony with the rest of the body, but when a body part is out of harmony with the rest of the body, dis-ease exists.
All energy is vibration, and all vibration has sound. The sound shifts the vibration of a space or energy field and has a transformational effect on each of us in our daily lives as well as in the healing process. For example, when peaceful, calming music is played in a room or space, it promotes serenity and relaxation. Likewise, hearing one’s favorite song and singing along, in the car for instance, brings joy. On the other hand, hearing intense booming from another’s car at a stoplight can result in agitation. Singing has been used to soothe a baby to sleep, ease the stress of an illness or pain, and to bring more joy into one’s life. Sound and music create vibrations within and around us.
In many cultures, chanting—repetitive melodic speaking or singing of a phrase or statement (mantra)—brings focus and peace. Chanting moves energy and assists in connecting spiritually with the Divine. Chanting is a way to tune in to the frequency of love. The chanting of mantras, as practiced by Benedictine and Tibetan monks, creates an avenue for a dialogue with the Divine. This connection clears energy and transforms the vibrational frequency.” ~excerpt from Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy and the Power of Positive Thought by Margaret Ann Lembo
