This is my take on the traditional Bavarian/Austrian hat pin. I altered the traditional shape and the fastening mechanism.
The pin is designed to hold either a feather or a bundle of hair (goat and badger are typical). It is held in place with a screw.
The downy feather is from a peacock. I found it at a zoo.
Here is the pin and its pieces.
The threaded points are inserted into the hat, and the round nuts secure it from inside the hat.
Fabricated from Sterling, yarn, and glass beads.
This comes out of the mind of my wife, Christine. She knitted the necklace and I fabricated the closer.

Fabricated Sterling. Approximately 1 1/2 inches.
This pair of crosses was commissioned for a confirmand and sponsor. They’re a variation of some I’ve done previously. These are smaller, and with a little difference in emphasis.
This shows one of the crosses with a chain.
These articulate for movement.
