Catching Dreams

Dream-catchers are a big trend in hipster and festival fashion right now. For an old-school gal like myself, dream-catchers send me back to the 80's when we would make "God's eye" weavings out of colorful yarn. On my recent travels in Mexico, I saw dream-catchers everywhere, and there is even a village or two that support themselves by making and selling these geometric marvels. I love incorporating geometry and trends into my henna patterns and drawings as I find the process to be very meditative. The "seed of life" is another very popular motif, which requires careful planning to execute properly in henna but is worth the effort.
