Statement

I began with a straw cowboy hat with a cowgirl angel perched on top. It morphed into my motherís Christian Dior chapeau. The angel became a wise grandmotherly guardian

An antique collar became the angelís dress. Dangling decorations were chosen because I liked the pieces and their color. My great-grandmotherís circular gold earrings and the thimble are family keepsakes. Angel shoulder pins gave me the idea for a protective hat angel.

I consulted two books on angels for guidance. At 92, I do believe we need more guidance in todayís world. As I made my hat I could virtually feel the designer, Christian Dior, with me.

I dedicate the hat to my motherís elegant memory.
