Check out these Native American style Dream Catchers that are available at the Spiral Circle. This
is a sampling of what is available.  They can also be made to order if you have a personal preference.

In the Chippewa (Ojibwa) language, the words that form dream catcher are a combination of the
word for "spider" and the word for "dream snare."  These items consist of wooden hoops, filled with an imitation of a spider's web made of fine yarn. The Ojibwa believe that a dream catcher changes a
person's dreams. According to Legend, "Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through the hole in the center . . . bad dreams would be caught in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper." Many try to determine what messages are being passed onto them and what the message represents.
