One year, many moons ago, we found a wandering spirit , and amazing chelonian (aka turtle) crossing our back yard. We visited him for a small while, and talked about how turtles migrate using the same paths every year. One of my then small children had the idea to paint something on its shell to see if we could find our wandering friend in future years. We painted an American flag and the word "Freedom" , then put our gentle friend back on his path to finish his journey. A year had passed and we had completely forgotten about our chelonian friend, until one day one of my boys came from the woods screaming "Momma! Freedom came back, Freedom came back!" I wasnt sure what he meant til I went outside to the deck where they had brought him up to , and behold it was him, bigger, and with remnants of the flag & the word freedom still on his shell.
Hows that for awesome-ness?!

Here, this poor fella, not sure what his story was, but rest assured , this turtle shell came from a licensed taxidermist- no animals are ever harmed for the purpose of making jewerly or other curiosities like this dreamcatcher you will find in my shoppe.

I hand cut strips of chamoise colored deer leather and hand wrapped the 14" diameter ring.
I carefully placed chocolate thread to create the webbing that surrounds the turtle shell.
Hanging below & center is a cluster of Red Schlappen feathers, vintage toffee colored & coffee brown colored lace and a trio of wodden beads.
The sides of the dream catcher don vintage coffee brown lace and exotic red golden pheasant feathers.
A coffee brown leather cord is used for hangin it.
F.Y.I. From the top of the hanging strap (which can be shortened if needed) to the longest center lace, this piece is about 30".
