This beaded hat band was attached to a wool cowboy hat on Goodwill.com. I took a chance that the quills were real and bought the hat cheap. I asked that they keep the hat and ship just the band (adjusting the shipping accordingly). My wife (a Native American) pronounced it the real deal.
Been finding some nice feathers on the ground lately. Also found a small, recently molten probably young garter snake skin that I’m trying to figure out how to use for an adornment.
Shown here on the hats are a custom tooled leather band, yellow finch and unidentified silver feathers, blue jay feathers
A few yrs ago I had this beaded band made for another hat. It’s an exact copy of an original pattern that was broken or otherwise damaged. It was a great match for the hat but turns out I didn’t like wearing that hat much. So today I dropped it on this Worth-Walden. Not a good match so I did net even tighten it up.
It would appear to be a good match for this Kevin O’Farrell if I remove the 3-ply. I also have a late No. 1Q with a skinny ribbon, in need of a bath that might get a look.
