Paula says - "There is a real turquoise nugget in the center of each dreamcatcher and 3 sterling silver feathers dangle below."
What is a Dreamcatcher?
Dreamcatchers originated in the Ojibwa Nation and were adopted by Native Americans of a number of different Nations. A dreamcatcher originally was a willow hoop on which was woven a net or web of sinew and then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.
Some consider the dreamcatcher a symbol of unity among the various Indian Nations, and a general symbol of identification with Native American or First Nations cultures. Others believe that dreamcatchers protect sleepers from nightmares, allowing only good dreams to pass through and catching bad dreams in the net where they perish in the light of day.
