Most of us have heard of a dreamcatcher...but have you ever heard of a suncatcher? Well, if you look it up this is what you get:
a decorative piece of glass, mineral, or other see-through material that is hung in a window to bring in and disperse the sun's rays on the walls of a room.
But come on…is that really all they are? That definition just makes them seem...blah which is not the case!
Here at NYA Hippie, we like to think of them as the optical equivalent of a windchime. As a breeze passes through the windchimes, it makes beautiful music for your ears to enjoy. On the other hand, suncatchers are more of a spectacle for your eyes, creating sparkles of dancing lights and rainbows! They come in many shapes, sizes, colors and are made of may different types of materials including: crystal, stained glass, beads and more.
“Feng Shui (pronounced "fung shway") examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in your living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow. Your personal energy flow affects how you think and act, which in turn affects how well you perform and succeed in your personal and professional life. Feng Shui affects you every moment of the day — whether you're aware of it or not.”
Suncatchers are a great way to bring good Feng Shui into the home or workplace. They take the positive energy of the sun and energize the area by spreading that light around in the form of rainbows and flecks of light. Hang a suncatcher in a window and watch as it refracts and disperses that light into a beautiful array of colorful rainbows that scatter all around the room. You'll see why they are sometimes referred to as light catchers and rainbow makers. It can bring the energy of the sunlight into any area that is dark! What makes our suncatcher so special is that they are not just appealing when the sun is shining. Our unique suncatcher designs always pleases, even if it's cloudy out!
NYA Hippie's suncatchers are handcrafted and made with the finest quality crystal and prisms that have been expertly cut for the ultimate pristine sparkle. Some of NYA Hippie's suncatcher designs also include natural gemstones with various healing properties. Crystals and gemstones have been enjoyed by many over the years, not only for their beauty, but for their healing and spiritual properties. The word ‘crystal’ comes from the Greek word κρύσταλλος (krystallos) which literally means frozen light. Pretty neat, huh?
