What are our Ring Suncatchers?
These are unique wood and crystal window-hangings that are shaped in 2 or 3 Concentric Ring Suncatchers. We make these in Co. Leitrim, Ireland. We use ethically and locally sourced Irish wood and high-quality Egyptian Asfour crystals.
When hung in a window the sunlight catches the crystal and disperses rainbows all around your room. Furthermore, the rings can all move independently of each other.
They make a perfect gift for any age or occasion, especially weddings, remembrances, special occasions, new baby, christening gift or baby shower gift, birthdays, and Mother’s Day. And Father’s Day too!

The finer details:
2 Ring Suncatcher
The diameter of the outer ring of the 2 Ring Suncatcher is 5.5″ (140mm). It has 5 x 0.4″ (10mm) crystal beads on the string.
3 Ring Suncatcher
The diameter of the outer ring of the 3 Ring Suncatcher is 7″ (180mm). It has 5 x 0.4″ (10mm) crystal beads on the string.
Both styles of Suncatcher come with a choice of either
- a 1.5″ (40mm) ∅ Sphere crystal (round ball shape) or
- a 1.5″ (40mm) ∅ Sun crystal (flat disc shape).
Both are capable of dispersing a myriad of colourful rainbows in equal measure.
We protect the wood by using approximately 4-6 coats of Danish Oil. We also use extremely strong, high quality braided fishing line to hang our suncatchers. Moreover, this string does not degrade in sunlight and therefore is ideal for hanging in a sunny window.
The string measures approx 16″ (400mm) from the top of the outer ring.
Please be aware that we have designed our suncatchers for indoor use and have not tested them outdoors.
What else do I need to know about the 2 or 3 Ring Suncatchers?

There is a choice of Spalted Beech, Beech or Oak Wood in the 2 or 3 Ring Suncatcher listing.
Feng Shui, Yoga and Irish Folklore:
In Feng Shui wood is the element of “new beginnings”. What’s more, in the home it has a positive effect on growth, healthy energy and family life.
Crystals bring positive energy into homes. They particularly bestow hope, joy and good luck. They activate positive and diffuse negative energy. A hanging crystal such as these 2 or 3 Ring Suncatchers can help to bring balance and calm into your space. They are especially useful in a Yoga room or meditation space.
In Irish Folklore, wood has undeniably a strong relationship with the Irish people. They believed the trees to be sacred and magical. In addition each tree has its own inherent properties.
BEECH has long been associated with ancient knowledge and “guidance from the past” to gain insight. In the home, it is good for healing, meditation and protection.
OAK is the sacred tree of the druids and ancient Celts. It is the tree of strength, endurance, prosperity and triumph. It bestows stamina, vitality and fertility.
ELM represents stability, grounding and strength and is associated with Mother and Earth Goddesses. Additionally, it enhances relationships and communication and bestows spirituality.
