Genuine suede small dreamcatcher with gemstone beads and feathers that measures 2.75 inches in diameter. Nice compact size.
A dreamcatcher is a sacred Native American object that looks like a spider's web. A woven net is attached to a willow hoop that is then hand-decorated with gemstone beads. The circular-shape represents the scope of the sky that the Sun and Moon traverse. Every part of the dreamcatcher has importance. As the photo shows, this dreamcatcher's net attaches at seven points along the hoop, representing the seven-pointed star that is so important to the Cherokee nation. The number seven is special to the Cherokee people. The Cherokee tribal flag bears a seven point star, which represents the seven clans of the Cherokee: the Bird, Wild Potato, Deer, Long Hair, Paint, Blue, and Wolf clans.
The feathers attached to the hanging cords represent air or the breath of life.
