Some years ago I was interested in making Dream Catcher Earrings. I purchased some large hoops, had semi-precious gems stones on hand and determined to use dental floss to create the web of the Dream Catcher. I read a little bit about making them and when I felt I knew enough decided that I was ready to proceed.
As I neared the finish on each earring I was faced with the need to get rid of the tail of dental floss after I'd tied everything off. Weaving it back into the design just didn't work and after puzzling over it I came up with the brilliant idea of sizzling the end of it with my lighter.
Unfortunately, this particular maneuver required a really steady hand and complete control of hand-eye coordination because I ended up destroying several of the Dream Catchers before I learned just how much flame to apply to the end of the dental floss. Well, I still wasn't really good at it and as I neared the finishing touches of another Dream Catcher I began muttering under my breath, "Please work. Please, God, make this one work." Over and over again.
See, when you make a dream catcher you're supposed to say a prayer while you're making it. That's just part of the deal. And, here I was at a really critical point where any false move could very easily spell the end for yet another earring. Seth interrupted me and said, "I don't believe that's the sort of prayer they had in mind." Sheesh…another one down the tubes.
