In our 5-Star Buys series we spotlight popular Etsy items that recently struck a chord with shoppers—and let their rave reviews do the talking.

It’s no wonder this stained-glass hummingbird is finding a permanent perch in windows the world-over: With its meticulously handcrafted prismatic plumes, not only does it capture the lasting beauty of one of Mother Earth’s most famously fleeting creatures, it sends glimmers of them darting about a room. Plus, pair it with an optional pretty pink flower add-on, and this suncatcher makes a particularly dazzling gift for any budding birdwatcher or window art enthusiast. Take it from one happy customer who stocked up for Mother’s Day:

“I ordered several stained-glass suncatchers from Ivan and he was great to work with. As soon as I got my packages delivered to my door, I opened everything up right away. Everything was absolutely beautiful and perfect! Thank you so much. I can’t wait to give these beautifully handmade gifts to my mom, step-mom, grandmothers, and great-grandmother for Mother’s Day. I will definitely purchase from this company again.” — DF
