My seven year old daughter had to make a dream catcher for her second grade class. She used this idea and did it (mostly) herself. I only helped her get it started. She added some brown and gold hanging amber pendants to the center and offset to the side. It turned out pretty good for a second grader and was a real hit in her class. Thanks for posting this and giving her the idea! If I can, I will take a picture of hers and post it for you to see...
OMG. I want one! I have a collection of dreamcatchers... I don't have much room left on the wall above my bed... but I'll be damned if I can't find room for one more.... Actually, I have an aunt who is Native American...perhaps I will talk to her and see if she can try to make me one, sice God only knows I have no talent in the art. That is--of course--if you do not mind me doing this, or me using your product as a reference.
It is absolutely beautiful. You have succeeded in combining two of the things I love most in the world--Native American culture (the dream catcher) and cowboys.... Thank you!!
Ps. Please get back to me on if I can show this to my aunt and ask if she can try to make me one. I really do not want to use it without permission.
Not sure if anyone has told you this yet, but the horseshoe was generally displayed with the closed part of it facing downwards. The idea was that it was holding all the luck in, like a cup, instead of turning it upside down and pouring all the luck out.
