Our colorful dreamcatcher earrings, lovingly hand-crafted in Peru, use thread and glass beads with a surgical steel core for a jewelry accent that's modern yet rich in tradition and style.
Developed by the Ojibwa culture, the dreamcatcher, or bawaajige nagwaagan, is a charm that is hung above a bed to protect children from nightmares. Traditionally made of willow and sinew, they are meant to dry out and collapse by the time a child reaches the age of adulthood. This "dream snare" is a hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web, and then decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads.
- Steel, thread, & glass beads

I have two pair and am ordering a third. They are light, just the right length and very well made. No skin irritation from the metal either.
Just the right size !
Adorable dreamcatcher earings! They are beautifully made with lovely intricate detail. Even better than I expected, thank you.
I received a lot of compliments with these earrings. So intricate, love them!
I bought two sets of these--in different colors. They are lovely. They are special to me as well as I am 1/2 native California Indian. I would recommend these to anyone who loves Native American culture and symbolism.
