Some suncatchers.

A suncatcher or light catcher is a small reflective, refractive, and/or iridescent ornament. It may include glass or nacre pieces and be hung indoors near a window to "catch" sunlight. A suncatcher is like the optical equivalent of a wind chime. Some designs are simple and abstract with perhaps some mobile-like chained elements, while more complex designs often evoke flora or fauna. Many designs combine suncatchers with wind chimes. It is believed that suncatchers were first made by the Southwestern Native-Americans.[citation needed]

Suncatchers may be mass-produced or handmade, and vary in simplicity of design from an arts-and-crafts project to a professionally handmade glass sculpture.
