i love dream catchers. i'll get a tattoo of one someday in memorial for my great gma olive, designed from some awesome native american earrings she left for me. she was very into the native american culture.
In Native American culture, a "Dreamcatcher" is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.
