My Latest Brainstorm! Hat/Headband Charms

THESE ARE MUCH SMALLER THAN WHAT YOU SEE DEPICTED IN THE PICTURES!!! PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND!

While sitting in the Doctor's office this morning I came up with, what I think is, a brainstorm! I was trying to decide what else I could make in the jewelry line that would be appealing to people. So I decided that maybe some hat/headband charms might be the thing!! What do you think? The one above and below is made with an Antique Ethiopian coin-silver telsun. And has dangles of olivine and dark yellow crystals and serpentine spacers. It is 1 1/2 inches in length, and 3/4 inch wide. So much smaller than it appears. I apologize for not showing it on a hat, but I don't have one.



The wooden one below is a wooden feather with Moakaite cushion beads hanging from it. This one measures 2 3/4 inches wide and 1 inch long. Again, smaller than it appears.



These are very lightweight, and so would be good on any hat, I think!
Before I would post them on etsy or my website, I would borrow a hat and take pics of them on a hat to get an idea of how they would look.
So, what do you think. Would there be a market for these? If so, what kind of price do you think I should put on them? What do I call them?
Any input on these questions would be very much appreciated!!!!

  1. Not sure about hat charms, I think I need to see them on a hat.
    They would make great brooches though.
    I love the wooden one.

  2. Very nice idea. And pretty. I have seen quite a few people wear these embellishments at Renaissance faires believe it or not :-) The leaf pin/brooch is really nice.
