The pictures don't do this work of art justice! It's even prettier in person. This dreamcatcher is actually 4 dreamcatchers and a medicine wheel in one. The largest dreamcatcher is 19" in diameter and has turquoise Czech crystal faceted beads woven into the webbing around the medicine wheel.
The medicine wheel is made of buffalo horn beads, brass beads, glass crow beads, and semi-precious stones.
There are three more dreamcatchers woven into the forks of the deer antler that are decorated with a variety of glass trade beads. They are 12" (30.48cm) in diameter, 9" (22.86cm) in diameter, and 7" (17.78cm) in diameter, respectively, and decorated with dozens of glass trade beads.
The width of this dreamcatcher is 19" (48.26cm) and the length is approximately 54 inches (1.3716m). It contains over 300 glass, brass, and bone beads.
The largest dream catcher also has ten long buckskin fringes decorated with black and turquoise glass crow trade beads, brass beads, and brass cones. Each fringe is tipped with a brass cone. There are more fringes on the sides of the dreamcatchers. There are 10 large barred turkey tail feathers along the bottom and sides. There are also two colorful macaw wing feathers and dozens of barred grizzly coque feathers.
This dream catcher medicine wheel combo contains many talismens to bring good luck and protection to your family. It has four genuine quartz crystals to absorb negativity from the room and keep it away from the people in the room.

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.
