Want to catch some dreams?...


 I just love the idea of dreamcatchers, thought I'd let you guys know how I came to making my version of them. I've always been interested in the idea of dreamcatchers and what they represent. The meaning of dreamcatchers and the beliefs surrounding their construction originate from Native American cultures. The dreamcatcher is a protective talisman that is used to protect people from nightmares and bad dreams. The charm was usually used for young children and hung above their cradles or beds. Now one thing you should know about me, every year I travel to Cornwall in England for a couple of weeks in summer and every year without fail I visit the incredible 'Museum Of Witchcraft And Magic' in Boscastle, it is filled with incredible things, I especially love the protection poppets that are displayed there, protection/love spells sewn into items of clothing or articles sealed inside walls of a home to keep it safe. The hangings I make are Inspired by dreamcatchers as well as these protection spells, you can have an intention or message written onto your hanging, I like to imagine the power of it growing as the hanging sits in it's new home, each message is written onto the wooden hoop using pyrography and can either be displayed or hidden beneath the threads.
