Words can not express how beautiful this dream catcher is. The time and care in making it are evident in its construction. The energy it emits is peaceful and calming. I am in awe at how unique this dream catcher is.

About

How it all began...

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Steffe and I am the creator and artist behind The Dreamer Weaver. Each Dreamcatcher I make is unique and constructed with high quality natural materials and lots of love. I am passionate about my craft, and I hope you can feel the love and positive energy through my art.

I have always admired Dreamcatchers for their traditional meaning in Native American culture as well as their aesthetic. I do not wish to copy the traditional Dreamcatcher, but use the general form as a canvas to create a composition that is inspired by its meaning.

I am captivated by the natural world. As someone who lives in an Urban environment, I feel that too often people are disconnected from nature and lose their wild and free spirit in the concrete jungle. Small meaningful encounters with nature can make all the difference in day to day happiness. I like to bring small aspects of nature into my home and work space to revive and foster this connection to the outdoors.

When I can't be outside, I bring the outside in! Crystals, precious stones, found wood, and feathers have been fascinations of mine throughout my life. I have fond memories of combing the forest for the most suitable walking stick and collecting only the most colorful stones from the beaches of Walloon Lake in Northern Michigan. These are the life experiences that I hold most precious. These are the moments in life that should be treasured.

My intention is to mix these natural and meaningful materials with some more unconventional ones to create modern wall art that brings a wild and free spiritual energy to your living space, nursery, or bedroom. A splash of color from a rough crystal, an abstract composition with found branches, and soft feathers are carefully combined to embody the natural world.

Feel free to follow me on instagram @kaorte for shop updates, new items, progress pictures, and snapshots into my daily life!

If you don't see exactly what you are looking for, please don't hesitate to Request a Custom Order so we can work on a design that will be unique to just you! I find custom orders to be a rewarding and enjoyable opportunity for creative collaboration between client and artist.

Sweet Dreams!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Sizing varies for each Dreamcatcher due to its design, but on average the dimensions for each standard size Dreamcatcher is as follows:

6" Diameter - 24"+ Long
8" Diameter - 30"+ Long
10" Diameter - 36"+ Long
12" Diameter - 42"+ Long

If you have a space constraint, let me know and we can adjust the final length and width to accommodate your space.

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to do custom and personalized Dreamcatchers! Just Click "Request a Custom Order" on the left side of the page to get started. Together we will come up with a sketch that reflects your ideas. Then I will send you some photos of various feather and leather options.

I love doing custom pieces and coming up with new designs. Often, a custom order becomes a named piece and earns a spot in my shop!

Care instructions

While in transit, the leather suede might become slightly crimped. Giving each strand a gentle tug should straighten them out! Please be sure not to pull too hard or the feathers and suede could detach from the dreamcatcher. While I do my best to secure each element permanently, they are still fragile works of art and should be handled with care.

Do you take payment plans?

I sure do! Just send me a message and we can work something out. After a deposit is made, I will start work on your Dreamcatcher. They will only be shipped when payment has been made in full.

What Crystals can I choose from?

My Crystal stock varies but generally I have these crystals readily available:

>Clear Quartz
>Rose Quartz
>Amethyst
>Rainbow Moonstone
>Labradorite
>Sunstone
>Calcite


Other Crystals are most certainly available, but require a quick trip to my local Crystal store. Message me if you have a specific Crystal in mind!

Can I have more than one Crystal on my Dreamcatcher?

Most certainly! I do have a slight cost associated with multiple crystals, but I assure you it won't break the bank. Just click the "Request a Custom Order" button to get started!

Can I have the EXACT Dreamcatcher in the photo?

I do usually have a few ready-to-ship items which you can find in the shop sections. For these items, you will receive the exact item in the photo.

I can do my best to create Dreamcatchers similar to the ones in the photos, but due to the natural variance of my materials, no piece is identical. Look at it this way - Your Dreamcatcher is truly one of a kind!

How long will it take to get my Dreamcatcher?

Since I personally handmade each Dreamcatcher, it does take a while to complete each piece. Depending on the volume of orders I have, it could take as little as one week to be shipped, and as many as six weeks. I will be sure to give you regular updates to let you know when you can expect delivery.

Please note: If you are international and have chosen First Class International shipping, I cannot offer a tracking code. Only Priority International shipments include tracking information. Even with that, I cannot guarantee how long your local customs office will hold the package. It could be 3 days, and it could be 3 weeks. This is completely beyond my control and I do apologize for any delays with international shipments.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my items come gift wrapped as a standard, free of charge. I have photos of my packaging in the shop updates and in the listing images. If you would like a custom gift message added to your order, please just let me know via convo or in the notes when you place your order!

Do you use real Owl and Hawk Feathers?

I do not use real owl or hawk feathers.

It is actually illegal to collect, possess, or distribute the feathers of birds of prey or migratory birds. You may only possess these feathers if you have a special permit.

These laws are in place to protect these beautiful animals from poaching. Instead, I use feathers that remind me of the birds that I take inspiration from.
