I loved weaving this dream catcher that has a deep meaning behind it. I decided to take you along with me as I set out to photograph this piece……….
This is Heather. She came along with me and photographed me while I photographed my dream catcher. What a great person to be around. We had so much fun hanging out taking pictures together. The time flew by. What a fun day!
This was our first stop. It’s possible that nobody else saw the beauty of this big, old tree the way I did.
Big, gorgeous undiscovered trees are one of my favorite backgrounds.
Here’s how one of those turned out. Beautiful, isn’t it?
Our next site used to be a prison at one time. I love the stones in this wall, and the way the vines are grown around it.
Here, I was getting a close up, so that I could show off some of the details real good. I’ll show you…..
The breathtakingly beautiful black & white design in this dream catcher features a big spider who is busily spinning her thin, white web…… the end of the web is entwined within her mouth and front legs.
The attention to detail in this piece is incredible! Hand painted spiders on wooden beads and wooden spiders with hand beaded legs. The feathers create beautiful designs within the tail.
The spider is removable from this dream catcher to give it a different look.
How about that? I thought they were some pretty good close ups.
So now I’ll tell you about the dream catcher & what it means to me.
Spiders are linked to fate and density; teaching us about our own lives…….because you weave your life by the choices you make. You may watch a spider as it spends a day weaving it’s web and if it doesn’t work, she’ll untie it and let it float away. You always have the ability to re-weave what you don’t like. You are an infinite being who will continue to weave patterns throughout your lifetime.
Have the courage to reach out and create your own tomorrows; to break out of the illusion that has you feeling locked in, and discover who and what you truly are.
