I started making this dreamcatcher with the intention of actually keeping it, but my mom saw it as a work in progress and fell in love with it, so she's gonna get it for Christmas now that it's done haha. It's wrapped and in my Christmas/WWP storage/oddities cabinet Cheesy



Picture doesn't entirely do it justice. It's much brighter and better looking in person. It's a 3 inch craft ring for the base. The hanging bit is a simple 2-2-2-2-2 chain in 18g 3/16" anodized aluminum rings with an 18g 1/4" AA ring on top, the bottom decorations are 19g 5/32" AA in a byzantine weave with 18g 3/16" AA mobius balls hanging from the bottom. The outter inner part is 18g 1/4" AA rings connected together inside with 20g 1/8" AA and connected to the ring with 18g 3/16" AA rings. The inner weave is Japanese 12-2 in a mixture of 19g 5/32" (they're purple, but you can't really tell) AA rings and 20g 3/32" rings with the outter bits being another 2-2-2-2 chain. I'm working on a larger one right now that's comissioned. It's driving me a bit nuts. This one drove me nuts too. I love it though.

This is epic and amazing!  I cannot imagine the time it took to weave this, not even counting the fiddly bits with figuring out all the ring ARs!  The idea is amazing, the weave is tight; your skills are fab!  This Rocks, for sure.

Thank you Smiley Not gonna lie, I'm terrible with ARs though so for a lot of projects I tend to just fiddle around and see what fits with what and if they work together I use them in projects. Dragonscale is one I'm still avoiding because I actually have to put time into making sure sizes and ARs work right haha. Plus I never order the right sizes for it.

This did take a lot of time though. The 3/32" rings break easily so using them took a longer time
