This dreamcatcher is 12" in diameter and approximately 32" long, not counting the hanger strap. It is also available in a 15" diameter size. It is wrapped in black buckskin leather and has 10 large guinea feathers and numerous smaller guinea feathers and irridescent black cock feathers that have a greenish cast where they catch the light. The feathers are held on with black and red glass crow beads.
Hand crafted in the USA when you order it. Please allow up to a week for construction time.
The web has three large glass beads with red golden pheasant feathers and numerous small red glass beads.
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.
Additional postage may be required if going outside the continental US.
