To the sunny side of life with suncatchers.

While wind chimes create soothing sounds for your ears, suncatchers are a sight for sore eyes. And more. Discover their joys, make them a part of yours.

A suncatcher is a decorative piece of glass, mineral, or other see-through material that is hung in a window to bring in and disperse the sun’s rays on the walls of a room. While this definition might make them seem prosaic, the ones we are about to introduce you to definitely are anything but boring. 

Suncatchers come in many shapes, sizes and colours. They are made of many different types of materials.  Some of the more popular materials used include stained glass, coloured glass, beads, and crystal. They are the optical equivalent of a wind chime. 

When a suncatcher is placed in direct sunlight or near a bright light, it disperses the light into colorful rainbows and light flecks that scatter around the room. That’s why they are often referred to as rainbow makers. The light isn’t just reflected, the suncatcher ‘catches’ the light, splits it, and disperses it around the room. It can bring infuse the energy of the sun into areas that need them.

Suncatchers have been used by many to bring good Feng Shui into the home or workplace. The little rainbows and light flecks dancing on your walls brought to you by the suncatcher are like a little reminder that there is reason to be sunny.

While wind chimes create soothing sounds for your ears, suncatchers are a sight for sore eyes. And more. Discover their joys, make them a part of yours.
