            I bought this to be used inside and its probably best for outside- it was much heavier and thicker than I was expecting. It seemed a little cheap to me.

            I actually bought this suncatcher from another seller in Mystic, CT but loved it so much, I looked it up online and found it here & wanted everyone to know I loved it and ordered another of the suncatchers Uncommon Goods sells by the same creator of this piece. The sun does not show thru it a lot, but it is so beautiful in the window that I absolutely love looking at it every time I see it. I don't think I'd put it outside. It is very fragile but sturdy on it's wire. I may even order one more of the new suncatchers in the catalog. The colors are beautiful. I heartily recommend this for yourself or as a gift.

            The hanging loop appears to be made of the same material as the sun catcher. Therefore it I'd very rigid. Being such a small piece, not thick, it broke the 1st day I hung the sun catcher outside. Thankfully Uncoomon Goods sent me a replacement immediately upon request w/no questions asked!

                  The colors were very dull and the light did not shine through at all. I purchased it for a gift, but sent it back because it wasn't pretty at all. I was so disappointed because it looks beautiful in the photo and is the perfect size. I would love one if I knew would have brighter colors.

                    I fell in love with this suncatcher in the catalog & had to have it. The reviews made it sound amazing & I dreamed of bouncing colors around my house once I hung in it a sunny, FL window. When it arrived, I was disappointed. True, it is very large (@ 8") but the colors were much muddier than I expected and it's so think, there's no streaming of the sun through them. Also, the red, green & royal blue that seem so evident in the catalog are barely noticeable in the actual piece. A lot of it looks black and/or gray :( There is also no cord or ribbon for it to hang from. Not a big thing, but that surprised me.

                      Mom loved the suncatcher! She thinks it is quite unique and beautiful. She sent me a picture after hanging it and it really brightens her kitchen. She also commented that it was shipped very securely. I definitely recommend this and will consider similar items as gifts in the future.
