The Mason Jar Wind Chime Solar Light harnesses solar energy during daytime and radiates a soothing, vibrant glow when it’s dark outside. Moreover, users may twist off the solar lid and place a candle inside it for yet another lighting option. Made from equal length, re-purposed metal chimes, the durable chimes produce a gentle sound when the wind catches them.

Fully automatic LED solar light comes on at night and goes off when solar charge falls down. Furthermore, the solar light is rain tolerant so you can leave it outside without worrying about its safety. It relies on replaceable, rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries to store renewable solar charge.

The detail description of product is provided below

LIGHT: Included is 1 silver handmade twist-on Mason Jar Solar Light. The original Mason Jar Solar Light™ sold here since May 2010! This is for OUTDOOR use.
JAR: The jar is a Clear Quart Mason Jar. 
HOLIDAY DECOR : Choose from a SANTA, SNOW MAN, or TREE insert. The snow globe decor is not glued down which allows it to move around with the snow, if it is shaken. Plus you can remove the jar contents after the holidays, & continue to enjoy the light outside the rest of the year! If you decide you'd rather enjoy the snow globe inside, you can twist off the solar light lid, add the antique zinc lid, and use the solar light lid on another jar outside! 
BELLS: The bells that come with the Santa Snow Globe, dangle into the jar. They are designed to be removable also.

{OPTIONS} You can choose at checkout from the drop down menu: 
**SNOW GLOBE CHOICE- Santa, Snow Man, or Tree
** HANDLES- With Handle, Curly Handle, or No Handle
