This is my Dreamweaver. I purchased the face about 12 years ago and had this basic idea for using him. Originally I was going to use red beads in a rectangular frame, but that changed. I like the round frame and the black beads work better. The frame measures 16" in circumference and it is all bead embroidered. It took me over 300 hours to do and don't even ask me how many beads I used.
The piece is about color, texture and movement. Even though the beads cover most of the surface, you can still see some color underneath. That represents those strange dreams just under the surface. The mirror is the Void, the place we don't want to see and from which things come forth into our nightmares. The doll's hand is there because I like it and it creeps out some people. hehehe
I have put in some fun things in the background to try to find. A squirrel, a flower, a snake and a zen garden. I want to add more embellishment to the beads around the face, but that is a future project....and you know how that always goes. ;)
