Anyone who has seen me around Craftster knows that I make a lot of charm bracelets.  As a result, my bead stash is huge.  Enormous.  Bordering on insanity.  After coming across some lovely crystals at one of my favorite vendors, I decided to put some of those beads to alternate uses by making some beaded suncatchers!  And, since I never do anything small...  I ended up with a ton of them!  They are made with beading wire, and finished with the metal loops for ease of hanging.

Rainbow - a rainbow of Czech glass beads and a 2" tall Barorque faceted crystal.


Sunrise - Czech glass & crystal beads in shades of amethyst, rose, citron and amber, with a 1.5" tall crystal teardrop.


Twilight - Czech glass & crystal beads in shades of amethyst, rose, azure, and Montana sky, with a 1.5" tall crystal teardrop.


Unicorn Princess - inspired by a friend and former student, who calls herself the Unicorn Princess.  Made with Czech glass & crystal beads in shades of purple, lavender, aqua, teal, and AB crystal, with a large teal crystal faceted heart, and a 2" tall purple Barorque crystal.


Ocean's Blue - Czech glass & crystal beads in shades of aqua, turquoise, teal, carribean blue, and azure, with a 2" tall Barorque crystal.


Teal - My favorite color. Czech glass, clear crystal, and AB crystal beads with a 2" tall Barorque crystal.


Rose Red - Inspired by fairy tales.  AB Czech glass & crystal beads in shades of deep rose red, leaf green, and crystal clear, with a large pressed glass rose, glass leaves, and a 2.5" tall AB faceted crystal.
