The chime ball is a sphere made in two halves, two domes. Inside one dome the silversmith solders in small strips of brass of different widths and different lengths in slightly varying curvatures as well. When looking at these strips it appears a little like a combination of organ keys and organ pipes. Into the dome he places a very small solid ball of steel, not unlike a small ball bearing. The solid ball moving across the array of brass strips is what creates the sound, again in principal not unlike how a piano or organ works. The silversmith then solders the two domes together to create a sphere. This sphere is then encased in Sterling Silver.
