Dream Catcher in Bulgarian means Dream Catcher. The symbol is gaining popularity and can often be spotted in various forms. It is most commonly found in home accessories and jewellery. Since this beautiful Indian amulet is definitely finding its place in our daily lives and in fashion in general lately, we decided to introduce you to its origin, meaning and its application in the modern jewelry world.
Why Dream Catcher and what is its meaning?
As already mentioned, this is an ancient Native American amulet that usually consists of a hoop, symbolizing the circle of life, and a net woven into it that serves to sift out bad dreams and negative energy. At its base, in turn, descend delicate feathers studded with beads and other decorations that accompany good dreams to ourselves. Authentic dream catchers were smaller in diameter and most often made of wood and string. Real feathers, beads and similar materials were used for decoration. It was most often placed over the beds of young children to protect them from nightmares at night. Nowadays, quite a few variations of the symbol have been developed, but despite its frequent and varied presence in our daily lives, the basic details are almost always identical.
Dream Catcher is not just a pendant that would only add aesthetics to our vision or home decoration. This amulet is associated with an interesting legend. Native Americans believe that good and bad dreams are scattered in the air at night. The dreamcatcher helps us by entangling bad dreams and nightmares in its nets, then erasing them at sunrise, but at the same time contributes to good dreams reaching us and staying in our memory.
