I make these one of a kind hats when I'm in between paintings, but still need to create. Some of the hats are new, some vintage with, most likely, awesome stories embedded into the felt...
I shape them, stamp the leather, make the sterling silver conchos for the band, and then stamp some lovely words, that make me smile, on the brim.
You definitely won't run into any one with the same hat!
This particular hat is new. (You'll have to make your own stories)
It says; 'You were wild once - Don't let them tame you'
I used beautiful Nevada turquoise, lapis and sugalite.
Size 56/7 which is about 21 3/4 inches.... (remember, it's easier to make it smaller with an insert than to make it larger. I don't recommend stretching these hats because of the handmade band that does not come off.)
