Handmade Jewelry – Dream Catcher Earrings, Wire Jewelry

Dream Catcher 1


This is a long overdue post! Click on the images to enlarge!

I fell in love with this dream catcher, a handmade jewelry by Zyta the moment I’ve seen it in Jewelry Lessons, I contacted her right away to get her permission to feature her jewelry in my blog, she was very supportive and had been corporative!

She made a DreamCatcher Earrings to add into her Handmade Wire Jewelry Making profile.

I know what dreamcatcher is, but I have zero knowledge with it’s background. All I have been taught about is that dreamcatchers are to catch bad dreams, from Wikipedia, it says:

“Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper.”

And here’s the description of this pair of Earrings by Zyta:

“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.”

I specifically like how Zyta constructed the net with wires and then attached to the wire-frames, and those blue turquoises really stands out didn’t they? Too bad I don’t have a picture of it on a clean background (but the current background for this picture is so beautiful!!! Look at that blue sky!!!!), here’s another picture I thought could show clearer image of the creation:

I wonder where she got those feathers from? Where? Zyta? :P

To hunt Zyta down, visit her at following websites, she sell all these handmade jewelleries there:


It’s Sunday, and I am sleeping in today. I hope you will have a relaxing and enjoyable Sunday too!
