Sleep Childe... A Catcher of Dreams by MajorTommy Sleep Childe... A Catcher of Dreams by MajorTommy
(Edit: Formerly named "Sleep Well Childe...", but I noticed that it doesn't show up in searches for "Dream Catcher", so I changed the name slightly. After all these years, deviantART, could you please give us longer titles, already!)

This was my favorite one from my Dreamcatcher phase about 10 years or so ago.

I made many of them, but this was special for a wonderful young lady by the name of Jennifer that I knew at a coffeehouse that my brother used to manage.

She later married him, just so she could become my sister-in-law!
he he ;)

It is a double ring Dream catcher, with a single web between them.
I had made many at the time, several with the double rings.

Brass rings, deerskin, artificial sinew, feathers, beads, and an amethyst chip woven into the web.
No glue, or other fasteners of any kind, were used.

The rings are about 14" in diameter, and I think it used to have a chinchilla tail woven into the top, but it might have been lost in one of the moves...

I have always really loved this one. :D

[Edit] I just noticed something... A couple of the beads on the two tassels on the right are higher then they should be. None of the beads are glued, they are held on by the knots.
No biggie though. I'm not gonna bother with another pic, and they are easily pulled back down. :)

Sleep Well Childe... by =MajorTommy. Not your ordinary dreamcatcher because this one is different with a double ring and yet only a single web between them. ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Thank you! :)

I've always wanted to make tutorials for my jewelry designs, but I never really considered making one for this. Maybe I will! (Someday...)
No telling if I ever will (so don't count on it), but feel free to check back, now and then. I could get the urge to do so next week, or 10 years from now. LOL!

It is about time I started making some tutes, though.

Peace!

Pretty much. Actually, they are not THAT much harder then a normal dream catcher, but they do take much longer to make.

Mmmmh, I love dream catchers... <3 But I've never seen one this three-dimensional before. It looks wonderful. How did you weave it across both rings?

And amethyst was a great idea to add. <8D Its properties fit with a dreamcatcher's purpose perfectly~

Dude, I tried to do some simple dreamcatcher and it is hard. The skill you presented doing this masterpiece is just outstanding. It blows my mind trying to understand how it was done ;) So still, tutorial would be great, think about it.
