I was blessed to receive two custom orders in the last month from my Etsy store! Both were dreamcatchers, which are the easiest items for me to make in terms of customization.
Here are my two orders:
This was my first order, from the beginning of the year. It uses a 14″ diameter hoop. The customer wanted something that would replicate her tattoo. Because she wanted a cruelty-free material (and I normally use deerskin lace for wrapping the hoops and hanging the feathers), I had to find a new option. Thankfully I found Jute cord, so it was a bit of a learning experience to work with it. I think that its natural fibers gave a nice natural feel to the item, and luckily I have plenty enough of it left over so I will make a few more items to put into my store. I also had fun trying to figure out how to make the peace sign. It involved a lot of communication to learn what each detail should be, but in the end it was a success and she’s happy with her new dreamcatcher!

I finished this order today. The gift recipient’s favorite color is orange, and the requester wanted this to be orange and grey, in the style of an already-made piece in my store. It’s a 6″ diameter hoop wrapped with orange ribbon. Orange is a rare color for me to use because I sometimes can’t think of color combinations using it, so it was nice to have an opportunity to use orange – and I’m pleasantly surprised with this piece! I like the silvery grey with the orange. I may make a smaller, simpler one in these same colors for my store.

I am happy to take custom orders for dreamcatchers – I can make them with hoops ranging from 2″ diameter to 19″ diameter, with an assortment of cords and a rainbow of threads for the webbing. I can also incorporate beads and charms with the webbing, and I have an assortment of feathers. Contact me if you’d like more information, and check out my store (linked above) for ideas of what I make!
