First Chainmail Dream Catcher

Well this will be my first post in over a year. I've been busy with real life and just haven't had time to work on my chianmail projects. When you get asked to make something for your niece you just have to take a stab at it.
So here is my first time in a year making something, and my first time ever making a Dream Catcher. I need to figure out how to tweek some things but thought I would get some feedback.
I used 16ga 5/16 rings for the large rings I don't remember the sizes for the small ones. I found the little stones in the beading section of a hobby store, and the crosses.

Cool. Imho, 4 crosses may be too many. Also, if it were mine, I might have found a way to lock the main cross into place. I really like the Japanese-style, alternating bead connections, though. You have a lucky niece!

Maybe it's just because I don't generally see maille dream catchers, but when I saw your first picture I thought "that's too loose--it'll look silly when it's hanging". Glad to see I'm wrong. Smile That's a very nice piece.

You could always make a similar dreamcatcher but make it your own design by using a different weave or a different style.
