This dream catcher features a spiral weave pattern and uses hundreds of tiny glass seed beads in the web.
Hand crafted in the USA.
The hoop is six inches in diameter and wrapped with hot pink suede leather.
It has bright red, orange and yellow dyed chicken feathers on the fringes. This color combination is traditionally known as the fire colors. Overall length is about 16 inches, not counting the 5" hanger loop.
The feathers are a by-product that would have otherwise been thrown away-- no birds were killed specifically for their feathers.

The Dream Catcher Legend
The dream catcher comes from an Ojibwe legend. According to the legend, hanging a dream catcher near a sleeping person causes the bad dreams to be caught in the web, while the good dreams enter through the hole in the middle and drift down the feathers to the sleeping person. Then in the morning, sunlight enters through the hole to melt the bad dreams away.
The beads in a dream catcher represent bad dreams that have been caught. A dreamcatcher can be made more powerful by adding personal totems that have significance to the owner of the dream catcher, such as fur, feathers, stones, beads or claws or bits of horn from the owner's totem animals.
