Sun catchers

My latest fad is playing with lots of types of wire and art silver clay. Some of the things I made with wire (using up lots of mixed up beads from previous projects plus new ones) were two sun catchers.

Number one - made with copper and sea glass - is now hanging in front of my living room window:

I hope you can see the copper tape and the bits of pre-knitted copper wire and all the crochet! I've also used sea glass, which shimmers beautifully in the sun light.

Number two is a present for a friend, which still needs wrapping!!! It's been made with hammered, silverplated copper wire, cream coloured craft wire and silver plated very, very thin wire. I've used millions of red beads, a bit of bending and wrapping and some crochet.


  1. Bet you had fun making these - the blue one is my favourite.

  2. Lovely to see all these new creations Sybille, looks like you've been having fun!
    Toby has also made his first ring from scratch recently, not quite finished yet, will put it on our blog soon.
    My favourite of all your new work is the copper and blue sun catcher, really pretty, fantastic colours, bet it looks even more beautiful when the sunlight catches it.
