Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.

The dream catcher has been a part of Native American culture for generations. One element of Native American dream catcher relates to the tradition of the hoop. Some Native Americans of North America held the hoop in the highest esteem, because it symbolized strength and unity. Many symbols started around the hoop, and one of these symbols is the dream catcher.

My dream catcher bracelets are made from start to finish completely by hand.  I wrap the metal ring with satin cord, design the web with 26 gauge wire, add the bead in the middle of the web and then the final touch is a charm. The band is completely hand braided with satin cord with a slip knot for adjusting to the perfect fit. Everything is original and made with 100% love from Creations by DreamLady.  And just to let you know, if you prefer a custom made bracelet, just send me an email at creationsbydreamlady@yahoo.com with a complete description of what you would like, I’ll be happy to create something just for you. 

Sweet Dreams,

For the love of music and those that enjoy playing a guitar.  Whether you’re an advance player or just a beginner, the love you have for that instrument is the envy of many.  I, personally, grew up playing the piano but my brother…well he was the musical genus in the family.  He could pick up anything and play it…the saxophone, piano and yes, the guitar.  Playing an instrument of any kind and creating beautiful music is a gift…to some it comes so easy and to others, it takes years of practice but in the end, it gives enjoyment to so many. I saw a quote the other day, “Music is What Feelings Sound Like”…how true this is.

With the above in mind, I have a lot of friends that play the guitar and being the creative mind I am, I asked several what they did with their strings when they changed them out.  To my disbelief, they said they just discard them…throw them away, there’s no use for them…little did they know!!  Well I asked several to start saving those old strings for me…told them, “I think I can put them to good use”.  I got my first box of old guitar strings almost a year ago…not quite sure yet just how I was going to make this work but with determination and a “dreamer’s mind”…things just fell in place.

I took that box of strings, went through and pulled what I thought I could use, sterilized them and cleaned them up…and now I have a whole new line of recycled guitar string jewelry….from bangles, to rings, to earrings…and my fans love them!! I go to music festivals and craft fairs selling my jewelry and the response from my guitar collection is overwhelming…people just love it.

So to my fans and followers, remember those things that you see have no use for you anymore, may just be the perfect thing for someone else.  You know the old saying “What’s one person’s junk, is another person’s treasurer” …well that old saying does hold a lot of truth!!
