    HAT ADORNMENTS: ribbons, bows, pins, pugs, leather, etc.

    I thought it would be nice to have a place to show the meany beautiful hat treatments there are. If there are names that are known for bows for example please include them.

    WOW. The quality of work on the vintage hats is awesome let alone the customs. Great pics Rabbit.

    Perfect timing! I am in the process of ordering some ribbon and attempting to rework a hat that came to me w/o a ribbon/bow. This may give me ideas and examples...thanks!

    How coincidental: I was just about to suggest or post a thread on UNIQUE hat bands--that is something beyond grosgrain in various folds and colors. The reason is that I am awaiting arrival of a sterling silver decorative band and need some guidance on how to mount and care for it. Here is the auction, and I am convinced that I stole it, simply based on pricing of any added silver conchos or ornaments from places like Ritch Rand, etc.

    Any experience with these is welcome. Thx.

    Ray, that's quite the interesting piece of workmanship. Unusual to say the least. What hat will it adorn?
