This dream catcher features your choice of medicine stones and an obsidian arrowhead in the web (shown in 5" size with Black Onyx medicine stones, black coque feathers, and black leather). Hand crafted in the USA.
The dream catcher hoop is wrapped with deerskin leather in your choice of colors and is available in 5", 7", 9", 12", or 15" diameter sizes (shown in 5" size). The length depends on the size of the hoops, but is around 14"-18"-22" -28" -36" overall.
The 5", 7" and 9" size have six feather streamers, and the 12" and 15" sizes have ten feather streamers. The 12" and 15" sizes have a larger obsidian arrowhead, and the larger the hoop, the more medicine stones it will have.
The long leather fringes are decorated with glass crow beads and your choice of feathers(shown with black coque feathers). If you have a preference for the bead colors on the streamers, just leave your instructions in the comment box of your checkout form. You can choose one or two colors from the Crow Beads shown in our craft section. If you don't specify a color, bead colors on the streamers will be chosen to compliment your choice of leather, stone, and feather colors.
If you'd like to, you can add extra options to make your dreamcatcher even more special. If you want more than one extra option, just leave a comment with your specifications in the comment box on your order form.
The feathers are a by-product that would have otherwise been thrown away-- no birds were killed specifically for their feathers. All our feathers are from farm raised birds and have been cleaned and fumigated.
The picture shown is representative. Because each dream catcher is hand made especially for you, and you can customize almost every option, there may be slight variations from the one pictured. This is a hand made item made to your personal specifications, so allow about a week for production time, (up to 10 days or more during peak periods such as the month before Christmas), plus shipping time.
This item can be shipped internationally.However, some countries have restrictions on the importation of feathers. Feathers cannot be shipped to New Zealand, for example. We can leave the feathers off upon request, if this is a problem for your country. Be sure to check with your customs office to see if they are allowed if you live outside the US. We are not responsible for items seized by customs.
We will notify international customers after your order is placed, if additional shipping charges apply.
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.
