Ternary Gem Hypocycloid by ChimeraDragonfang Ternary Gem Hypocycloid by ChimeraDragonfang
Dreamcatcher #5. A hypocycloid is a geometry thing. Like with Spirographs 'n' stuff.

Yes, the pendants are supposed to be off-centre.

Time spent: 15 hours. Two spent filing notches in the metal ring, ten for the weaving and three for wrapping the frame.

Tools & Materials: Metal file, beading needle, scissors, safety pin, duct tape, 15cm diameter metal ring, red thread, purple thread, green thread, three blue cat's-eye beads, one red teardrop bead, one green teardrop bead, one blue teardrop bead (because I didn't have purple), two metres of fake leather cord, superglue.

Sold.

Not the longest by far, but it took a decent chunk of time. What's more annoying is miscounting the notches and then having to backtrack and undo a bunch of the web. :stare:

I never really think about the time I use when I'm working on these. And of course those 15 hours weren't all in one day.

The steps behind it are pretty basic, but it does make beautiful patterns.
