My inspiration for the name of this hat was the most incredible tattoo and a lovely girl called Jackie! Second time that this happened...do you remember my hat called "Bianca" inspired by a tattoo???
As you might know by now, one of my passions in life are tattoos!
I love them and I see them as pure expression of art and personality!
After meeting the lovely Jackie Slattery at the Killarney BikeFest the past June and seeing her impressive new tattoo, done by Killian ONeill from Roberstown, in Kildare, I decided I was going to design a hat to recreate the beauty of its roses.
This is the "JACKIE" Hat.
A medium, hand blocked red Sinamay "Smartie" cap base, simply decorated with a beautiful bouquet of English roses and a two curled black quill topped with two red glass pearls!
This gorgeous headpiece is completely hand sewn, lined with black fabric and is worn on a millinery elastic.
The "Jackie" Hat is a stunningly simple and feminine design that will go with any outfit!
Thank you Jackie for such an amazing inspiration!
It was a pleasure to meet you. You are a darling!!
We will certainly meet next year!!
