Sun Catcher/Windchime


I am on a roll this week!  The sun is shining today and I remembered that I had not posted about the glass bead suncatcher/windchime that I made recently.  It is hung in my window catching the lovely sunshine.

I had seen lots of lovely suncatchers on Pinterest and decided to have a go at making one myself.  I used a large sink strainer to hang my beads from that I purchased from Amazon.  I used a good selection of glass beads - lampwork, pearls, crystals etc along with some silver plated charms and findings and some chain to hang it with.  I made up lots of bead strings and then attached the to the strainer.

I was so pleased with the finished item!!  It is for indoors only but if you hang it near a window it jingles with the wind!  I took my photo outdoors as the background was nicer and the day that I took the photo was very cloudy and dull.

I used alot of beads and made approx 15 bead strings!  I am going to make some more using a smaller sink strainer to make them more affordable and will take them along to my Christmas Market in December.
