Jane gets her Dream Catcher framed
This is my dream catcher, my husband bought it for me years ago from an Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona USA.
It’s something I’d always wanted and when he was out there working he bought one and brought it back in his case.
Everything on this dream catcher is genuine, there are arrows, peace pipe, eagle feathers and a eagles claw it’s quite amazing, and hand made by the Navajo Indians.
The mount board you see behind my dream catcher is a soft green called mimosa which is one of my favourite shades of green.
In this picture Rob has made the frame. I have chosen a black wide frame which is slightly curved, I think this will really set off the dream catcher.
The box frame
This picture shows two plain wooden frames, these are for the boxed back and needs to be fairly deep so that the dream catcher isn’t touching the glass.
As you can see here the two wooden frames are joined together to make a deep box.
Frame coming together
Here the black frame has been fitted to the deep box back and you can see the strip of mimosa green mount board along one of the short inside edges.
Before the edges are fitted, the glass has to go in and so that when the inside sides of mount board are fitted it keeps the glass in place and away from the dream catcher when finished.
Attaching to the mount board
Rob has wired the dream catcher to the mount board, if you look carefully you can just see the wire.
Top side feathers are glued at the wooden beads at the top of the feathers to keep them in place.
Bottom pair of feathers are also glued at the beads but I asked if it were possible to show the arrow heads and Robs done just that.
Finally, attached to the mount board and ready to fit in to the frame.
