Antique Hat Pins

I recently finished restoring this collection of beautiful antique hat pins. They had many stones missing along with mother-of-pearl pieces. It was both a challenge and joy making them whole again. They are amazingly long and large for hat pins. I believe the reason being so that in addition to sliding through the hat, they would also hold quite a bit of hair, probably worn in a bun. Here's hoping Kelly and her Grandmother will enjoy and treasure them more than ever!

They turned out so beautifully! Thank you for all of your work, time and love that you put into them. My grandma was very impressed with your restorations. They will be amazing in the shadow boxes :)
