Stained glass suncatchers are like little art forms of a stained glass window that hangs in your window. They are adequately dubbed, suncatchers because when the sun shines through them, they reflect a beautiful array of colors.
Most beautifully ornate, stained glass suncatchers are hand crafted in the fashion of Tiffany (famous for the Tiffany lampshades). This style of stained glass has become an amazing art form and when transferred into a stained glass suncatcher, you can add a touch of beauty that is reminiscent of Tiffany for a fraction of the cost.
The Beauty of Stained Glass Suncatchers
When stained glass suncatchers are handmade and highly crafted with quality stained glass materials, your stained glass suncatchers will not chip, fade, or peel. This is very important to the beauty of your suncatcher. Before purchasing a suncatcher you should inquire about how they were crafted, and ask how their suncatchers hold up to continuous sunlight.
Another beautiful way to display stained glass suncatchers is to hang them outside on a patio or porch. Before displaying them outside, again, you will need to make sure that they can withstand the outside elements without fading. Some beautiful suncatchers created for outside display will be the same on both sides, so that they are aesthetically pleasing from every point of view.
Stained Glass Suncatchers: Worth the Cost
When pricing stained glass suncatchers, it is important to remember that the more detail and handiwork that went into creating your suncatcher, the more it will cost. Suncatchers make beautiful gifts and prices range from the inexpensive miniature sized suncatcher to the more expensive and larger more elaborate creations. For those who collect suncatchers, they are all worth their cost, not in dollars but in their beauty.
Some stained glass suncatchers also have wind chimes, for an even more beautiful experience. Not only are the eyes stimulated with the beautiful array of colors, but also the peaceful musical chimes are a wonderful enhancement to any summer day spent outside just relaxing in the sun. So sit back, read a book and watch the butterflies play in the beautiful array of colors projected from your stained glass suncatchers.
