Beaded Suncatcher

This is a simple project from The Bead Studio that will add sparkle to a window or hang from a tree branch and watch it glisten. You can use a crystal or a bell at the bottom - we like to make this interchangeable!

Beaded Suncatcher Finished Product


  • 019 Soft Flex Wire – 18” – 1 yard
  • Assorted glass beads
  • Transparent glass seed beads
  • Bell or crystal
  • 2 crimp beads
  • Wire to fit through bell or crystal
  • Wire cutter
  • Chain-nose plier (or crimp plier)
  • Round plier


  1. Place a crimp bead on the wire. Add about 1” of seed beads and feed end back through the crimp bead. Squeeze with pliers until secure.
