She embodies the spirit of an all loving, nurturing, and protecting mother. I love things that have mass and feel soft so I couldn't help but add wool...lots of it! I wanted her to feel like an embrace, the colors warm, familiar, inviting. I used very natural earthy materials: hemp, rope, wool, feathers, silk yarn. I also have an obsession with precious gemstones so I incorporated a special quartz crystal donated by my husband from his collection...a real beauty. She sits in the center bottom of the hoop for ready to receive and transmit the good to the sleeper. Quartz crystal is good for clarity and amplification so I could only imagine what it could do for the dreams.
The dreamcatcher serves as a tool for peaceful rest. It is believed that the dreamcatcher will attract both good and bad but only the good will find its way through the web and down the feathers to reach the sleeper's dreams.
I really love the way this turned out. It is my favorite creation so far because I feel so much heart from this one and I hope you can feel it too.
