So I got myself a new hat, a wonderful, jaunty little burgundy bowler, and decided to add something to it. I picked up all of these copper pieces and used some copper-toned leather lace and made this hatband. As you can see from the smallest pic at the bottom, it goes all around, sixteen pieces in all. It's currently not affixed, allowing me to use it on other hats, but I am debating attaching it permanently to this hat.
Gourdon once again helps me out here with the modeling.
