I decided to give her beaded, frizzly hair. Inside some of the washers, I placed irridescent sequin-like flowers, attached with pearl-ended pins.
Some of the beads spell words, such as ART, HOME, FAMILY. The spirals represent her thoughts spiraling out into the world. It will take a lot of time to finish her hair this way!
The silver leaf seemed to be the best nose; I attached it with wire. Its weight will also help balance against all the wires in her head. I may need to modify the blueness of the face somehow--it's pretty intense. When he saw it, my husband asked, "What planet are you from?" Ha! She looks rather sad, which was not intentional. Perhaps she's not so much sad, as she is at peace with herself.
