Created from silver and bronze, Justine Brooks' Dreamcatcher necklace and Dreamcatcher earrings introduce a new kind of jewelry. The Dreamcatcher design is impeccably beautiful, but it is more than that – it is magical. When you wear these earrings or this necklace, you will feel the passion and love that flows into their design and mixes with the ancient power of the Dreamcatcher.
Lakota Legend of the Dreamcatcher It is said that long ago, a Lakota spiritual leader climbed up a high mountain where he had a vision. Iktomi – the trickster and wisdom seeker – appeared to the great leader as a spider. Iktomi spoke to the Lakota Elder in the sacred language. While he spoke about the cycles of life – man's beginning as an infant, his journey through childhood, and the life of adulthood – he spun a web inside of a hoop of willow. He adorned the circle with offerings of feathers, beads, and horsehair. He continued to speak of growing into old age, a time when we must be taken care of as infants before completing the life-cycle.
As he continued to spin the web inside the willow hoop, he spoke of the forces of good and bad. He shared that if you listen to the forces of bad they will mislead you and may cause you harm, but if you listen to the voices of good they will steer you in the right direction. These forces can join or interfere with the harmony of nature.
When Iktomi finished speaking, he offered the web he spun. He explained that the web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center. He told the Elder to use the web to help his people receive the good energy of ideas, visions, and dreams. The energy of bad ideas, visions, and dreams will remain trapped in the web while the good passes through the hole in the center.
The old Lakota spiritual leader shared his vision with his people, which has been shared with many people all around the world. Many believe that the Dreamcatcher hold the destiny of the future.
Catch a Dream
When you wear your Dreamcatcher earrings or necklace, the first good thoughts you will experience is how exquisite they truly are. Handmade with attention to detail, intricately etched into precious metal as if Iktomi himself guided the jewelers hand. The Dreamcatcher necklace and earrings complete any outfit. They are stylish and show your taste for fine art and jewelry. But above all, your Dreamcatcher jewelry will trap the negative energy and only let in the positive. However, you must believe.
