| Dream Catchers at Bearlanders.|
The dream catchers sold at Bearlanders Trading Co are authentic Native American dreamcatchers, handcrafted in the American southwest. Our dream catchers are made by members of an American Indian family who we have worked with for over 14 years, they are Navajo Indians and their work is greatly admired. Each dream catcher comes with a certificate of authenticity. The Navajo family who we buy our dream catchers from also sell their dream catchers to the Grand Canyon National park as well as other National parks around the country.
Bearlanders Trading co is proud to offer authentic dream catchers made in America, in an assortment of sizes and colors. The same American Indian family who make our dreamcatchers also make our Mandalas (a symbol of the warriors shield, thought to protect the home). The Mandalas are also available in various colors, sizes and prices. In addition, we offer handcrafted Kachina dolls in varying traditional dress.

Popular Animal Jewelry available at Bearlanders.
Every animal on earth is sacred, revered or has spiritual meaning in one culture or another. Just as the Eagle symbolizes unity, strength and freedom for the United States, in many Native American cultures, the eagle represents power and is the messenger to the heavens.
True to our name, Bearlanders sells a large selection of Bear Jewelry. The Bear is a symbol of strength and power. The Bear is considered to be one of the most powerful and sacred of all animals. Because the Bear hibernates, it is considered to bring the gift of renewal. American Indians located in the American Southwest have created many beautiful pieces of Bear Jewelry. Many of these pieces are crafted with gemstones such as Turquoise, Onyx and Tigers Eye, which are worn by both men and women. We offer many other popular jewelry items include Buffalo jewelry, Eagle jewelry and Wolf jewelry. At Bearlanders we also offer a large selection of gifts and collectibles including American Indian Kachina dolls. The Bear Kachina is thought to have great power to cure the sick.
The Meanings of Gemstones
Semi-precious gemstones are commonly used in American Indian jewelry. Different stones hold different meanings. Amethyst, a light purple stone, is useful for enhancing intuitive powers. Sugilite, which is darker purple, is also believed to increase psychic powers and improve one's insight.
Turquoise is one of the most popular gemstones used in American Indian jewelry. Turquoise is used in healing and has been felt for many centuries to bring good luck. Native Americans have used turquoise in jewelry designs since the 15th century, but it has only been used in combination with sterling silver since the 1800s. This practice is thought to have been introduced by the Spanish. For a wide variety of Gemstone meanings < - Click here.
