    The most common meaning of the dream catcher, originating from the Native American Ojibwe tribe, is that it filters the bad dreams away protecting you from evil and negativity. The legend of the dream catcher is to only let the good in and protect ourselves from the evil. The good dreams find their way though the center of the circle while the bad get caught and with the first sign of daylight they disappear.



    One of the most popular ways to connect metal is cold connection techniques using rivets. (cold meaning no soldering or heat) Rivets are decorative and popular way to join materials together and can be made from hollow tube or solid. The technique is the same but wire will create a solid rivet and tube will create rivet with a hole through the middle.
