I have had a beaded suncatcher pinned on Pinterest forever! I decided of course rather than make one for myself that I would make one for my partner in the Random Swap. I used memory wire and glass beads to put this together. It takes A LOT of beads. It ended up costing me more money than I anticipated since my local bead store that sells loose glass beads charges by the ounce. Glass beads are heavier than I thought! A fellow Craftster member made one and used more seed beads in hers. I hate working with seed beads but it may be a good alternative to use as a filler for next time. Another tip if you decide to make one for yourself... rather than pushing the beads round and round the wire to the bottom just string a few on then pull on both ends of the wire and they will slide right on down.
Here is the one I made my swap partner
I decided I liked the finished product so much that I just HAD to make one for myself. I ordered some glass bead mixes on Etsy for a decent price and made this purple and blue beauty to myself. Now I just need to find somewhere to hang it.
I think that these would look equally as nice hanging in a bedroom or nursery too!
