Took about 45 hours to make, applique stitch. Size 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads. The hair is black matte, distinguished from the black opaque used through the rest of the piece. The back is black leather, with an embossed heart in the middle. This was a custom request from my little brother Bradley for his girlfriend, Leanna, as Leanna collects Simpsons memorabilia.
