The Solaris Dreamcatcher features one of my most prized cabs, a petrified Texas yellow coral, and natural Pinto Valley from Arizona.
“Long ago in the ancient world of the Ojibwe Nation, the Clans were all located in one general area of that place known as Turtle Island. This is the way that the old Ojibwe storytellers say how Asibikaashi (Spider Woman) helped Wanabozhoo bring giizis (sun) back to the people. Asibikaasi took care of her children, the people of the land, and she continues to do so to this day. When the Ojibwe Nation dispersed to the four corners of North America, Asibikaashi had a difficult time making her journey to all those cradle boards, so the mothers, sisters, & Nokomis (grandmothers) took up the practice of weaving the magical webs for the new babies using willow hoops and sinew or cordage made from plants. It is in the shape of a circle to represent how the sun travels each day across the sky. The dream catcher will filter out all the bad bawedjigewin (dreams) & allow only good thoughts to enter into our minds.” - Lyn Dearborn
It hangs 12" to the top of the sun which is 1 3/8” in diameter and has a sunburst design hand stamped all around it. It measures 3 3/8” from the top of the sterling and fine silver sun bezel to the tip of the longest sterling silver feathers, is lightly oxidized to accentuate the hand stamping and hangs from sterling silver Italian chain. You will receive the pictured necklace.
