What goes into creating a custom dreamcatcher?
Well, let me start off by saying creating custom dreamcatchers is my absolute ✨favorite✨ thing to do! Lunaocity was born out of my love for creating and giving (read about how we got started here).
I love when a client messages me with an idea they have for a dreamcatcher. I create these dreamcatchers all the time in my head, so seeing what other people are thinking, their creative design, and seeing their perspective on things definitely refreshes my outlook at the creative process.
I try as hard as I can to get the exact feel and look that a client is going for. I usually have a lot of back and forth with the client to ensure that I'm understanding what they will want to see in the final product, while reinforcing that this is a custom, handmade piece, so it will vary a little.
The piece behind me in this picture was created for a little girls birthday party. The mother found me on Instagram and told me what the color palette for the party was and sent me a photo of a dreamcatcher she had already found on Amazon. (A HUGE thank you for continuing to purchase with a small business even though you already found what you were looking for! 🙌🏼)
With this exact piece, I had never strung beads onto my weaving, so there was a bit of a learning curve with that. I had initially strung the yarn on a premade dreamcatcher but I just knew that the beads would make it POP! As frustrating as learning a new technique is, I couldn't have it any other way. I spent the extra 3 hours on the weaving and learning because this had to be perfect!
Also, when I'm packaging custom dreamcatchers, I'm able to customize the packaging as well. Knowing that a little girl was receiving this for a birthday, I wrapped it as I would a birthday present for a family member + added a birthday card for her. I can't wait to see the pictures of it hanging at the party and the little girls happy face! 😍
I'm thankful for the opportunity to create and get paid for. As always, thank you to those who support and love on my baby business! It means the world to me when an order pops through.
Sending you all the love you can hold,
