Fabulous!  I have the hardest time with the dreamcatcher, but I'm going to keep practicing!

Another beautiful piece. I love all the different materials.

Nice work, nice colors, cool textures.

Wonderful Clarissa. I think I used brown first, then dark rust, and then a tan.

I did 4 dreamcatchers, small ones and came great, perfect ! Thanks for your book ! Going to make a big one next. May I ask which colors you used to make this one...? I've been thinking of walnut brown, light rust (or buttersctch) and country yellow...Do love earth colors.

Love the variation of color in "dreamcathcer center. I find myself drawn to natural materials used in a design

Smaller ones are harder. I just measure 1/4" above where the hole is cut. Make a start and measure around 3/8" and mark. Keep going around and marking. If it is too hard, try 1/2" instead of 3/8" for your first one.

Well, I'm trying to start on my 1st dreamcatcher. I'm trying to make a very smalll one, just don't know how I'll do to divide in equal wholes with 3/8" apart...how do you do...?

Thank you so much for the explanation Marianne. I'm getting ready to try one very soon. I have just starting working with gourds. Have done 2 up so far. Prior that, did lots of woodburning, leather burning and wood carved. Love your work, it's really GREAT!
