Hat Pins ~ Crystal Velvet
Hat pins have been around for many many years. Initially they were formed from bone and not just used for head wear, but also as garment closures.
As man became more able to use other materials, the hat pin became metal. Beads, feathers and stones were selected to adorn them and they became a feature item used to enhance the hat.
In recent times, hat pins have been seen as old fashioned and unnecessary, but just recently, they are making a come back and now adorn many a wedding hat.
