I had some trouble with the crystal bevel turtle,. It happens. I may still get to use it but I needed to "step away" from it for a bit. So, I needed a quick and easy piece to keep moving forward. This suncatcher came in real handy for just that purpose. It's made entirely of transparent glass and looks great in a western or eastern facing window. Who says suncatchers have to catch morning sunbeams only? One of my most favorite lights is the golden afternoon sun of North Central Florida...it ranges from a deep orange to an amber-gold that I've never witnessed in any other parts of this country.
