Meet: “Mr. Bad Hair Day” by Dini @ Beadazzled of Oregon
My inspiration for this crazy Dude started with the wonderful poly lion’s head I finally talked Amee of “Ameerunswithscissors” into making for me along with 3 others of different colors. She gets the most wonderful expressions into these characters! He is made mostly of seed beads of all finishes and sizes and accented with an array of ceramic and glass beads. I first glued the ceramic onto a stiff backing and then bead embroidered his mane. Both straps were engineered individually and then attached to the centerpiece. I create my own “bead soup” mixtures and much of the products in this piece came from those.
