Making my dreams come true!  I had a dream I made her, so........

She has a polymer clay face using Lisa Pavelka's foils on sleeping side.  A mirror face on the other.  Anyone is this goddess when looking into her face lol.  Sorry, I feel like a goof today.

Here she is stuffed and complete.  As I bead I thought of the different paths your dreams may take.  She has collected three dreams along the way.  Smiley

She is awake and ready to go bead shopping (of course)

Side view

I see mini beaded goddess dolls in the near future!!  Cool

 Mariah Tonelle--how honored to have such a great compliment on top of me being the first post of yours here on craftsters!  Welcome aboard!

 alwaysinmyroom--there is a reason I vision mini-dolls in the future!  She required an entire hank (which I never had happen before) in the turquoise color alone.  And every chance I had for about two weeks to complete!  It starts out with the size of face found or made.  I have mini-mirrors and faces so I see where I am going lol.  I could never make my money back on her spent in beads and time, so she is mine!!   Great excuse as always right??

 pennydreadful--YAY!!! TY TY TY!!

I make mini ones as well, but I sort of cheat by adding other embellishments like yarn and trinkets...I admire yours because it is basically ALL beads!!  I do not have the attention span for such a long project...yep--it is a keeper for sure!

I love the little faces...they are so serene....ahhhh...something about these little gems that makes one very happy! Cheesy

Ooooooo - Gorgeous - GORGEOUS - GORGEOUS!!!!

I love the story that goes with this - the path our dreams take - everyone is a goddess Smiley
I love the beads that stick out on the side and top of the head - I don't know if you meant for them to be hair or a crown but they could pass for either and make it totally perfect! The color combo is gorgeous and (as always) the beading is PERFECT!!!!!!

That's really amazing!

When I first saw the thumbnail on the main page I thought maybe they were earrings. If you beaded something like one of the sides for those, but maybe a little smaller, and hung it from an earwire, those would be spectacular earrings!

Your goddess would be beautiful even without the symbolism. *With* the symbolism, she's - magical.

Just wondering - I've seen a technique in a book that involves stitching on a background. Is that how you did this, or is it something else?

I am inspired. I want to make one. Or many!

No I did not really have a plan when I began her.  She started with the clear E beads on the center front and kind of grew from there.  Trick is to stay within two to three colors max or she would look too overdone (if there is such a thing lol)
