I love this candle holder, and the wind chime is more musical than some inexpensive ones, but it cracked when I burned an actual candle in it.

I got this wind chime/ candle holder on sale for only $10, which was half price, because the chime tubes had gotten all tangled in their strings, so it was just in a messy pile with no box. I liked the design and the color, and the chimes made a prettier sound than some cheap ones, so I bought it. I managed to untangle the tubes without too much trouble.

I had never used it with the candle, and decided to hang it in a doorway for Christmas and put a tea light in it. Although there is an interior holder to keep the flame away from the glass, after only about 30 minutes I heard a snap, and sure enough the glass has cracked. Although it cracked the complete length of the holder, it is a tight crack, and I have a hard time even finding it, so I am just calling this a lesson learned. I went out and bought a battery operated candle to put inside it, which looks very nice.

The design on this is really pretty. There are two dragonflies molded in to the heavy green glass globe, and the background is all stippled for a nice texture contrast. The clapper has a molded flower design. Overall the unit is quite heavy, so it won’t just blow around in any light breeze, although the clapper to make the chimes ring will move easily in the wind.

It hangs from a black chain with three connection points for stability.
