This fancy dreamcatcher is woven around a four point deer antler. The hoop is 12" in diameter (30.48cm) by approximately 31 inches long (78.74cm), and the largest antler tine has a length of about 8 inches (20.32cm). The exact length of the tines will vary with each antler.
You can choose your leather color (shown in Gold Buckskin) and the small semi-precious stones used in the web (shown with turquoise), and whether you want brass or silver beads and cones. If you have a color preference for the crow beads on the fringes, leave a comment in the comment box on your checkout form. We have these crow bead colors.
This specialty one-of-a-kind dreamcatcher has all kinds of trinkets. The top left tine has 7 real buffalo teeth and 7 real deer dew claws. The lower left tine has a real muskrat skull and a real coyote tail just below the skull.
The upper tine second from the left has 28 brightly colored Golden Pheasant feathers held on with silver colored cones, and two faux elk ivories (teeth).
The third upper tine has two real coyote teeth.
There is a big 1 1/4 inch piece of red coral in the web and 18 small turquoise nuggets surrounding the opening in the center of the web, and many glass trade beads in the web. A long pheasant tail feather in the web extends to the bottom of the fringes below the web.
Inside the opening a 2 1/2" long clear quartz crystal dangles. There is a second large crystal on the side of the dreamcatcher and a 3/4" Chinese turquoise nugget.
The bottom and right side of this dreamcather has dozens of long deerskin fringes that have been twisted in spirals and are decorated with glass crow trade beads, silver plated beads, and are tipped with silver colored metal cones.
This antler dreamcatcher was handcrafted in the USA. It is a one-of-a kind piece--the one pictured is representative of the one you will receive, but may vary slightly.
This dreamcatcher can be shipped internationally. However, check to be sure these animal parts and farm raised pheasant feathers can be imported to your country. We are not responsible for items seized by customs agents. Feathers of any kind cannot be shipped to New Zealand, however, we can remove the feathers upon request.
There are also restrictions on some of these animal parts in some states in the continental US. Muskrat skulls are illegal in Wisconsin. Deer parts cannot be imported from out of state to the states of New York, New Jersey, or Maryland. There may be restrictions in other states, so if you aren't sure, check with your local Fish and Game Dept before ordering.
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.
