Dimensions: Dream catcher diameter 2.5 cms (1 inch). Feathers about 2.5cms (1 inch) long. Chain approximately 18 inches (45 cms) long.
Other information: Comes complete with liquid silver chain, as shown in the photograph. Liquid silver is a term used to describe a type of sterling silver chain made from tiny tubes of silver strung together
Origin: Authentic Native American jewellery, made by the Navajo on the Navajo reservation in the USA
We say: The silver wire used at the centre of the dream catcher is hand crafted and woven with much skill. A turquoise bead is woven into this web and four other beads are included in the chain. The three feathers hang loose (ie they dangle). In all a beautiful piece of Native American art.
This necklace matches the large dreamcatcher earrings that we also sell.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Balanced, soothing, spiritual
Turquoise is said to be a perfect balance of male and female force and has a restful, soothing energy. Due to its balanced nature, it's a good stone to have around during the development of psychic and spiritual skills as it reminds us to be more aware of our intuition without losing track of earthly reality. As a tool, it can be beneficial for astral travellers or meditators.
Additionally, the peaceful energy can remind us to try and remain calm during emotional unrest and develop friendships rather than enemies.
- Catches the good dreams, lets the bad dreams perish
Dream catchers are intended to aid and protect those sleeping below by filtering their dreams. Symbolically the dream catcher allows good dreams to pass through the web and drift down to the sleeper, while bad dreams are said to become hopelessly entangled in the web, where they perish at the first light of dawn. By hanging a dream catcher above your bed, you signal to a deeper part of yourself that you want to remember those dreams that are of use to you. The dream world is a doorway to the subconscious - the inner workings of your life that you are not always aware of. By listening to your dreams you can learn more about yourself. The feathers symbolise air or the breath of life.
When you hang a dream catcher above your bed or around your home or wear a dream catcher as a piece of jewellery you are signalling to a deeper part of yourself that you wish to be more aware of your dreams and aspirations. You wish to 'catch' your dreams and bring them to ground so that they may become a reality. As is also the symbolism of the dream catcher you wish for it to entrap those dreams that are negative and entrap them so they do not manifest. So wear a dream catcher when you wish to bring your good dreams to life and for the bad ones to perish.
