And another...

I used an oval shaped key ring/split ring with a gutted piece of paracord over it, then used 0.9mm braided nylon cord to make the dreamcatcher. For the fob/lanyard, I used some CoolGlowStuff 3/32" cord, with a snake knot to attach it to a flashlight. There's enough loop left to put my thumb through(the lanyard, not the dreamcatcher) for retention if used when boating, camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, etc..., so that I don't lose it and a clip to attach it to a belt loop or even a watchband, to prevent loss.

That flashlight is a JetBeam CL-E V2, which came out in 2007. I also have the earlier V1.2, which is a twist on/off model compared to the V2 tailcap clicky. It's not made anymore, but JetBeam continues to make newer models using the latest LED technology.

Going Gear has a great selection of LED flashlights to choose from, including JetBeam. I was eyeballing their Jetbeam Jet-I Pro v3.0 CREE R2 LED Flashlight at their booth during a gun show last weekend, but I just can't afford a new flashlight right now.

I rarely sell knot work online because I can't afford to keep a variety of materials and accessories on hand to do requests. There are folks that do make things by request, like Ken Cardwell, and others in the buy/sell/trade sections of various forums in my links list.

After I posted, I had to double check, and the pictured flashlight is actually my JetBeam CL-E V1.2. Still a great pocket flashlight.
