The Challenge was for me to draw inspiration from the wonderful pictures of Derby Hats that our Hostess Bobbie Rafferty posted. You can see them here: http://www.beadsong.blogspot.com/2013/04/hats-off-challenge-sign-ups.html
I was drawn to the black and white photos.I decided to try to make something that would be as bold around the neck as the hats were to the head. I hope you like it. I used only Natural Materials. My Native American culture inspired me once again. I used Bone, Horn, Stone and Wood . I made my headpins from copper. The clasp is also handmade using copper. I found the softest Greek Leather. It wears well.
Please stop by the other wonderful designers that have taken this challenge as well.
