This Power of Dreams dream catcher features a tripple hoop pattern that combines a dreamcatcher and a traditional medicine wheel. Hand crafted in the USA.
The hoop is wrapped with White deerskin and is available in 9", 12", 15" and 18" diameter sizes (shown in 15" size). The length depends on the size of the hoops, but is around 20-24-30" overall.
The 9" size has three feather streamers, the 12" size has five feather streamers, and the 15" and 18" sizes have seven feather streamers.
The long leather fringes are decorated with brass cones, glass crow beads and your choice of feathers(shown with furnace hackle coque feathers and an immitation eagle feather). It has a large central feather and two long hanks of horse hair.
If you'd like to, you can add extra options to make your dreamcatcher medicine wheel even more special. If you want more than one option in any one dropdown menu, just leave a comment with your specifications in the comment box on your order form.
Bead colors on the streamers will be chosen to compliment your choice of leather, stone, and feather colors, or you can choose your own bead colors from the glass Crow Beads shown in our Craft Supplies section. If you have a preference, just leave a comment in the comment box on your checkout form. You can choose up to two colors of beads.
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 web has quartz crystal spirals. Crystal asorbs negative energy from the room and draws it away from the people in it. Everyone will be in a better mood in the room where this medicine wheel dreamcatcher combo is hung.

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 months 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 medicine wheel represents the Four Directions, Four Colors (Races) and the Four Phases of Life.
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.
