The Whistle Stops Here

Thanks to all my Facebook fans that guessed what this Rustic Boho Gypsy Tin Cuff Bracelet was made from..... Some guesses were: super hero lunch box, tamborine, flute, kazoo..... All were great guesses and gave me some new ideas of things to try smashing. Kathryn guessed right after many tries by others and a few hints. Here's the story.....

It all started with a Slide Whistle (aka as a swannee whistle, piston flute or jazz flute). It has a little rod that you move up and down in the chamber to make a wheeeeeeeeee sound as you blow.
