More and more people are choosing an innovative new way to remember their loved ones by using the soothing sounds of Mother Nature.
The wind chime urns sold by Dallas based company, EcoWindchimes, have become increasing popular with people looking for a special way to remember lost friends, relatives or pets. The ashes of their loved ones are placed inside a metallic urn which sits on top of a circular striker at the center of the wind chime.
The gentle sounds created, when placed in a porch or garden area, act as a natural and reassuring reminder of the person or animal who has passed away. Customers also able to have the urn engraved with a special message of remembrance, along with a corresponding image; people often choose angel wings, a cross or dove.
Company owner, Stephen Betzen, said: “This seems to be a growing trend and the ability to use natural sounds to remember a loved one in this way is something that connects with people on a very spiritual level.
“It’s because wind chimes have always played an important part of family life in America. It’s those memories of summer days of lemonade, checkers and the sounds of a wind chime in the background. It’s children falling asleep to the soothing melody of a wind chime while visiting their grandparents. So it’s really tied into our collective memories.
“The feedback we get from customers is extremely positive and it’s uplifting to hear some of the stories; the sense of comfort and reassurance they get from hearing the chimes and the happy memories it helps to trigger.”
The urn kits include everything needed to attach it to a wind chime. EcoWindchimes supply only two types of wind chime; these are the only two manufacturers who have managed to their high standards in terms of a product’s tonal quality and the environmentally friendly methods used to create it. The two companies they supply are Grace Note and Music of the Spheres. The wind chime Urns are designed to fit all Grace Note Wind Chimes.
Grace Note wind chimes were originally made by two Californian musicians, Jeff and Mark Kile, who came up with an innovative design which allows the chime to produce a sound which is considered to be the ‘most musical’ ever achieved. Stephen and Rachel Betzen launched EcoWindchimes.com in 2005 with a passion and commitment to find only the highest quality products, made using environmentally friendly methods. The core values of the Dallas based company are ethical standards, ecological sustainability and supporting local economies. The company supplies only products which are able to meet these standards. The company continues to develop and will be looking to extend their range of ecological products and to launch a backyard habitat store which will complement their online presence.
