I love roses but do not have a green thumb. This suncatcher celebrates that love. This ring of roses will look lovely all year long in a window or as a wall hanging. If the lead crystal drop is added it will create rainbows on the wall if hung from a southern window. In my house, because of the overhand from the roof, this happens all winter long to help get through those long winter months.
