This dream catcher features a spiral weave pattern and uses turquoise stones in the web.
Hand crafted in the USA to your specifications when you order it.
The hoop is wrapped with deerskin in your choice of colors, (shown in Pearl White) and it has 10 long leather streamers on the 12" and 15" size, 8 on the 7" size, or 6 on the 5" size, which are decorated with glass crow beads and your choice of natural farm raised pheasant feathers (pictured with greenish ringneck pheasant feathers), white or brown turkey feathers , duck feathers, or natural chicken cock feathers.
This dreamcatcher is pictured in the 9" hoop size. The larger the hoop, the more pronounced the spiral pattern will be.
Bead colors on the streamers will be chosen to compliment your choice of leather 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.
The feathers are a by-product that would have otherwise been thrown away-- no birds were killed specifically for their feathers.
Turquoise is said to bring good luck.

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.
