Two dreamcatchers, Kensie and Maureen, found new homes in San Francisco and Canada! We continued the show with a pop shop all weekend. A huge thank you to my dear friend, Carrie, for always being so supportive. She drove up from Livermore (over an hour away) to see me and make some holiday purchases.

Dreamcatcher for Healing

Dreamcatcher, Healing StonesJulia Gomelsky

I was recently commissioned to create a dreamcatcher for a friend who just lost her dad (and best friend) unexpectedly. I was honored to make something for grief, loss, healing and hope all at the same time. I decided to go with all white, including white gold tipped feathers, because they remind me of angel wings. I carefully chose the stone fluorite for its healing properties in times of challenge. It can help bring more structure in everyday life, making people physically, emotionally, and mentally prepared to overcome both small and big challenges. In times of confusion, loss or emptiness, the uplifting energies of this crystal will be a reassurance that everything’s going to be alright. 

I also added two rose quartz (also known as the "love stone") stones for extra love, which everyone needs, especially in times of loss to help in healing.

This medium dreamcatcher is called Hally.

The Making of a Dreamcatcher

DreamcatcherJulia Gomelsky

I don't give too much thought into a dreamcatcher, I just start making it and let it come to me. This time was no different. I bought grey suede which is a new color and I got to work making the center circle. After a few days, when I felt inspired, I added the pieces for the feathers. I really liked how it was shaping up, very full and beautiful. I thought about feathers - pink, white, grey, black but finally went with grey and white for this medium dreamcatcher. I used Amazonite for the center stone to give it a pop of color. 

I named her DANIELLE and she's available for purchase.

It's chilly today in Santa Monica. I have my heat on 70 and sipping on some green tea while I work on a new batch of dreamcatchers. I'm currently making a large size (14") in light tan suede. I'm not sure what feathers I'll use... I'll just let the dreamcatcher decide when it's time.
