Full View is Loved for These!
Here's the two dream catchers I've made. I want to make an "elemental" set (just the 4 basic elements). So here's Earth and Fire.
The first on the left (and first dream catcher I've ever made, EVER) is an Earth one. The frame is made of a willow branch (thus this is VERY fragile, and that's why it doesn't have a perfectly circular shape), and is wrapped in green with green beads. The two feathers are mallard duck, I believe. That or Canadian goose...I dunno, I got them from near my house. There's also a clear I think glass thingy that I thought was neat and reminded me of a leaf at the bottom middle (the shiny thing) replacing a feather, proceeded by a string of odd green beads, lol. I'm not so proud of this one. The twine is way too loose, so it's not so appealing. But, err, let's just pretend it's to go with the natural pull of the earth's gravity, to let nature make the beauty....or something like that, lol. I like the little leaf beads though, and how easily these feathers went on.
The one on the right, of course, is the second dream catcher I've made and is fire. I like the quality of this one much much more. It's got a metal ring for the frame, so it's durable and could stand me tugging on it a lot to wrap everything nice and tight ^_^ It's got some neat cats eye beads (one small, the rest medium sized) on it, and these weird red plastic beads. It's also got what I think are dyed chicken feathers
I have no idea, I got them from some artsy weird thing, and kinda ripped them off of it, haha. These feathers don't look as nice how I did 'em, but they were a pain in the butt! But on a side note, I did the twine on this one much tighter so it's way better in that aspect. In the middle there's another plastic bead and another glass thingamaboby. My brother says it's corny, but ya know what, I like it!
LONG DESCRIPTION, SORRY!
Next I'll prolly do Wind. Do you guys like these? Could I make monies off of 'em? Sorry for the picture quality: I am NOT a photographer!
