Thanks to getting inspired by this suncatcher http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62920.msg596091#msg596091 I made my first suncatcher. Please be gentle with me. I've never made anything like this before in my life so I'm feeling tentatively quite pleased with myself. This is also only my second post so if I'm posting in the wrong place I am sorry. Since the beachglass suncatcher/windchime that inspired me was on this board I guessed that this was where I should also post.

I'm posting close-ups because it's really quite small. Sorry about the image quality. All I have is a camera phone to take photos with.

This one is a prototype which we will keep. The next one I make will be a Christmas present for my mother-in-law.

The tigerseye beads are from a bracelet that I had years ago that had broken. The green glass and the little crystals at the bottom have been attached using green florist's wire just like Jennickell did with blue wire. I've had the little crystals for years but they were just sitting in a box for the last year. The large green glass piece in the middle has the word "Trust" etched on it. I picked it up for 50c at a $2 shop. The rest of the beads and the string I bought at the local bead shop.

I really enjoyed this.  It all fits so well together and it must be even more beautiful in person.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.
