Painting with Beads Head Band OOAK
A quality department store bought wire mesh gunmetal coloured, French headband. I have bead embroidered a section of lace with a variety of premium beads and semi precious coin beads. The seed beads are Miyuki Duracoats that have a durable galvanised finished. The headband is expertly beaded using Fireline and a wide variety of premium beads including Peridot, a semi precious gemstone beads. Antique carnival glass bugle beads adorn the central floral motif, these beads are from the 1850's. Each leaf has beads carefully selected to achieve the variegated style of a real leaves. The applique is sewn through the headband, the back of the applique is finished professionally with UltraSuede and single edge beading seals the rim of the design. This is a one off design. The headband is comfortable to wear, not a cheap 'made in China' headband that can be uncomfortable, hard and tight. The colour way is a mix of green and orange hues. It would suit any natural colour hair ie blondes, redheads, brunettes and dark haired ladies who are seeking an unusual handmade piece of wearable art. Adult sized headband created as a project for Australian Beading magazine, Vol.6 No. 4 (2012) pg. 100. (see 5th photograph). This headband features on the front cover of a Marcia's DeCoster's latest book ...Marcia DeCoster Presents .. 30 Interviews with 30 Artists. I refund any overcharges for shipping, if the shipping is more than I have charged then I carry that cost. Australian Postal charges are expensive I can only apologise for the greed of this organisation.
