This immense dream catcher has a stunning visual impact and intricate aesthetic details; wrapped in French leather and hung with lengthy hand-cut fringe The inner web is woven by hand with the intention of capturing all of the bad dreams while allowing the good ones to pass through the centre. The web is representative of Natures' ultimate connection that links all beings. The frame is adorned with a Silver Druzy Geode gemstone which has an excellent sugar crystal texture. The surface is striking as it displays a huge amount of tiny crystals. The gemstone is tinted in a series of colors, which results in a unique and exquisite effect. These gemstones are mostly covered with titanium, providing it an impressive and dazzling finish. The sides of the frame are sprinkled in chunks of netted pyrite chunks which are mirrored in a cascade of pyrite draped down the center of the leather fringe. The crystal is wrapped in a snug leather support. The bottom fringe and frame are decorated with feathers of varying colors, which are said to let the bad dreams that have been caught in the net drip down them to be burnt away with the morning light.
The leather used is very high quality from a very reputable small batch distributor that has been in their family for multiple generations here in Paris.
The feathers are from domestic bird species that are accepted by international customs and not rare species. Usually I use goose, pheasant, peacock, guinea fowl & turkey.
