he Great Barrier Reef. This hat was designed for a millinery Contest. The Theme was Australia. I created my version of the Great Barrier Reef, using cobweb sinamay, feathers, wire knit, and silk abaca. I used Swarovski Crystals for Southern Cross.
I was among some of the most talented milliners in the USA and abroad. I was thrilled to win 2nd place in the popular vote.
This stunning saucer is sure to attract attention wherever you wear it. It will be a great Derby or Ascot hat.
The Hats and Fascinators on this web page are made by me in my studio outside of Nashville, Tennessee. I use the age old technique of hand blocking the millinery material over wooden blocks. I wire the edge of the brim to maintain the shape and add stability.
I use high quality products many of which are purchased internationally. I love to make sinamay, felt, and fabric hats. I use silk linings, and silk flowers and dye many of my fabrics myself to maintain color continuity. Please contact me to create your perfect hat.
