i've been making them for 5 years ish...
but i stopped for almost 2 years at one point... and the first few weren't great... because i tried to make them out of supplies i had at home... Hangers (frame) wrapped with scrap leather that i self cut, and embroidery floss (full 6 strands) so they were very chunky looking and rough, but after that, when i spent the money and got premade rings, leather lacing (they come on spools, thinner ones are better then the square ones..) and got beading string, or synthetic sinew...

I wisted but forgot to comment.  Cheesy

I absolutely love your dreamcatchers.  especially the first one.  but the beaded one is amazing too!  I never would have thought about making beaded dreamcatchers, and I'm a beading freak!  I may have to go out and get some of those rings for myself.  Wink

thanks for sharing!

I only thought of it, because a few years back, before I could make dreamcatchers, I saw one. A vendor on Vancouver island... but, they wanted $300 for it, and I couldn't justify spending all the cash i had for my vacation on one item (I had skrimped and saved to have money for the trip at 14) so i resolved to make one one day. It took 5 years for me to finally actually try it after learning how to make dreamcatchers, but i'm glad i finally have Smiley and i can't wait to make another... even if its a little slow...

these are great!  The first one, the inset circles, I like it best.  Not what you see normally in dreamcatcher.
