The "Mni" dream catcher is named after the Lakota word for "water," referencing both the azure-blue watery hue of the doily and the legend that tells of how dream catchers first came into being – when a trikster and searcher of wisdom called Iktomi comes to a Lakota spiritual leader in the form of a spider. This is when Iktomi speaks with the elder about the cycles of life, and the good and bad forces inherent in that cycle, all the while spinning a web on the Lakota man's decorated hoop of willow branches. When he had finished, he gave the elder back his hoop, telling him to use the web to help his people make use of their good ideas, dreams and visions, while allowing the negative to be filtered by the web, caught in its weaving. This is a real quick version of that story, but it is nonetheless where the legend and the power of the dream catcher originates from :)

I made this dream catcher from a vintage crocheted lace doily which I have hand-dyed a rich periwinkle blue and stretched over a macrame hoop which I have covered with bamboo fiber/wool blend yarn in a teal hue. I have adorned it with various feathers in blues, greens, and greys; as well as with a deep royal blue faceted tear-drop stone which I have repurposed from a vintage necklace. A creamy-white magnesite tear drop accented with a tiny genuine turquoise bead hands from the center of the dream catcher and various spent bullet casings hang from its frame. I like the idea of repurposing bullet shells to have something harmless and beautiful emerging from them rather than destructive bullets. Fringe is tied into a loop at the top for easy hanging.

Design and craftsmanship by Sunday French Toast.

This would make a wonderful special gift for a loved one or even for yourself :) It will come carefully packaged so that all of its beads and feathers make it to you in excellent condition :)


Dimensions: Dream catcher measures approximately 14 inches (35 cm) in diameter, with longest center feather extending about 11 inches (28 cm) below the hoop.
