Just In: 5 New Dreamcatcher Belly Rings

Maybe it’s the magic of Christmas, or maybe it’s some residual Halloween spirit, but either way dreamcatcher belly rings are in style this season!

Here at Belly Bling, we know that while you want to get in on the trend you also want your bling to stand out from the crowd. So while you see dream catchers everywhere, we’ve come up with five twists on the classic design that will make your belly bling the one people notice.

As if the name doesn’t say it all, this dream catcher is unique in that it features an industrial-inspired center in addition to a gemmed blessing bead (see our article on Spiritual Style for blessing bead details). This piece brings the ancient Indian relic into the 21st century.

This dream catcher is all about ornate details. While the hoop is made entirely of surgical steel and gems, the different line patterns convey every tone from grey to light blue. This piece is just plain pretty!

This dream catcher bling is the complete opposite of the antique and steampunk belly bling; it’s very simple. Made of surgical steel and clear gems, this one leaves room for the wind (and good dreams) to blow through.

However, the aqua tones tend to stand out more than clear gems, and it goes better with blue jeans. As you know, it all really depends on your individual style and what you’re looking for! Both feature the pretty, intricate crisscross pattern.

Instead they are part of the hoop, as is a turquoise-colored ball. A gem, wolf, gauge ball, and feathers, this belly ring has a little of everything.

 

 

Dream Catcher Belly Rings: Spiritual Style

image of dream catcher belly ring from BellyBling.netWe are dreamers, and we are believers.

Our parents tell us that Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny exist, and so they exist. We don’t have to see them to know that somehow, magically, there will be a quarter under our pillow where a tooth once was. Then, as we grow up, we lose some of that magic.

It’s like in the movie the Santa Clause, when Dr. Neil asks Charlie how he knows Santa is real. Charlie says, “Have you ever seen a million dollars? …Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.”

Of course, when we grow up we learn that Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny were all Mom and Dad, but the power of our dreams is one belief that survives. Now you can embrace that power with dream catcher belly bling.

Native American in origin, dream catchers have been around for generations. Many believe the Ojibway tribe was the first to create them, but there are also Chippewa and Lakota legends. No matter the tribe, the meaning behind each element of the dream catcher is the same.

The webbing inside of dream catchers is designed to trap evil spirits and bad dreams and let the good ones through. In the night, it’s thought that spirits float freely. Good spirits are able to pass through the hole in the middle, and then trickle down into the feathers. Bad spirits, however, get caught in the webbing. As the sun comes up and hits the dream catcher, the bad spirits are destroyed by the light. They evaporate, never to trouble you.

The hoop itself symbolizes harmony and strength. The bead brings you blessings from one of the seven directions (directions depend on the color):

  • Blue: Father Sky
  • White: Ancestors’ knowledge of people
  • Green: Mother Earth
  • Purple: the inner self – the Creator
  • Red: our Ancestors’ knowledge of the land
  • Yellow: our Ancestors’ wisdom
  • Black: a road with two directions – one is abuse, the other healing

Dream catcher belly rings range from simple to ornate, some being decorated with wolf charms to bring out your inner animal spirit.

So how about it, are you a believer?
