diameter hoop wrapped in soft deer skin.
In the web is a kyanite blade. Kyanite (from the Greek word kuanos sometimes referred to as "kyanos", meaning deep blue) is a typically blue silicate mineral. Like Citrine, Kyanite is one of the two minerals on the planet that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy, and therefore never needs cleansing
Also in the web is a piece of bright red branch coral and a 1000 year old Hohokam pottery shard.
On the edge of the hoop is a tiny medicine bag filled with healing herbs and crystals. Below the hoop is a swag of paua shell and abalone shell beads and an abalone shell pendant.

Words from Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk:
DREAMCATCHERS are known to the Indigenous peoples of the Americas to filter and destroy bad dreams, thoughts or negative influences, allowing the good, positive and enlightening influences and strong healing to take place. Totems, fetishes, ritual and ceremonial items significant to the owner are added for additional healing energies. Read more about dreamcatchers . . .
