Fine Art-Dream Catchers
Red Feather Woman — Rose Red Elk Original
One of Rose’s many talents is designing dream catchers. Her unique style is contemporary with Lakota intention. Her early designed incorporated beads as she discovered how a color brings light to the weave. The body of the dream catcher takes on a life of its own, as she carefully hand threads each bead or stone. Rose gently wraps each hoop with strips of leather, and then begins a weaving, using artificial sinew. As an artist, she may have an idea of a color scheme, but as she begins to build the heart of the dream catcher, she never knows what it will look like until she completes it. Her intent as a handcrafted design is full of positive energy as well as unique.
She gathers special beads and gems to her collection to use for a “one of its kind dream catcher”. Some of the stones have healing energies and Rose will also custom design for those who want a particular stone, color or theme. She also uses beautiful feathers, pheasant, duck, chicken, parrot, and turkey.
The ancient legends of the dream catchers hold a special healing energy for those who believe. Red Feather Woman’s dream catchers blend the old with the new. Never losing the power of positive energy, healing, and peaceful design, allow the dream catcher to help all your dreams come true.
