Stars & Moon Suncatcher (Handmade in Bali)
This beautiful stars & moon suncatcher has been hand-made in Bali by an organisation that supports local schools. (See below for more info). Between the wire frame is filled with opaque resin with a slightly bevelled surface, which aids the reflection of light as it passes through.
As this is hand-made the colouring can vary by minor shades (but not much), but quality is constant.
Size of Suncatcher: Total length of suncatcher (from the top wire loop to the bottom) is approx 66cm. As this is handmade with string to tie the stars and moon together, there may be slight variation between this (give or take a couple of cm's). Width across the stars at widest point is roughly 5-6cm.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Miracles, prophecy, hope
When many of us in the west think of the star as a symbol the first one that comes to mind is the star that announced to the wise men the birth of Jesus Christ. As such we connect the star with hope and prophecy and we begin its association through countless civilisations with mysticism, cosmic forces and universal mystery. The Mayans and Egyptians are known to have mirrored star constellations in the arrangement of their pyramids and some Native American tribes see the stars as the souls of their ancestors watching over them.
The star is a symbol of something much greater than ourselves because it has a connection with the very foundation of life, with the very beginnings of the universe, and how creation actually started. The mystery lies in how light came from darkness. In many traditions there was a blackness, a void, and from this void creation sprang. Stars and suns are widely seen to be part of this moment. The star signals a belief in the ability of something to come from nothing - a belief in miracles. A star is like saying 'yes' to life. It is like a positive affirmation, saying that you are always open to the unexpected.
- Intuition, feminine, psychic
Throughout many traditions the sun represents the father and male principle and the moon the mother and feminine principle. The energy of the moon is intuitive, deep, subtle, feminine and psychic. To say this is a feminine energy does not mean to say this energy is just for women. Men and women have their female and male aspects. We all develop them both.
The moon is also associated with clairvoyance and knowing without thinking. To use the energy of the moon does not involve conscious thought. So to wear or have around you the symbol of the moon is to state your universal intention to use your intuition, to simply go with what you feel and to know that to do this is for your greater good.
The moon has different phases and throughout these phases it affects us in different ways. For example the full moon represents illumination, unconscious made conscious and all can be seen. The crescent moon symbolises new beginnings and the making of dreams into reality. Because of this cyclic nature the moon it is also connected to rebirth and how our true essence really is immortal.

- Bridge between supernatural and natural worlds, hope, equality
The rainbow, featuring an arc of seven colours (red, orange, yellow, green, battle, indigo and violet), is typically regarded as a bridging symbol - bringing together the supernatural and natural worlds. The arc of the rainbow touching the surface of the earth is seen as representing hope, treasure and fertility, as the familiar phrase, 'a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow' emphasizes.
The symbol has featured widely in different cultures, each adding their own unique meaning. In Greek myths, it was Iris the rainbow goddess who conveyed messages to earth from Zeus and Hera. In Norse legends, a rainbow representing the bridge Byfrost, and a similar notion was used in Japan for the seven-coloured staircase Buddha comes down when returning from heaven. The rainbow features in Christianity, too, notably during the great flood when a rainbow appeared above Noah's ark.
