hat pin

Fabricated Sterling.  Approximately 2 1/2 inches.

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.

articulated crosses

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.
