Crystal Birch continues to forge ahead on the path to perfecting millinery, and keeping the craft alive and relevant for today’s context, ‘’I hope to inspire people with the simple shape of hats, so they look elegant and timeless.” Birch said – as she updates the traditions of hat-making through exquisite innovations and collaborations with other artists, of all mediums.

This offering is complemented by the elemental shapes of Philippa Green jewelry; maintaining a sense of form around the UFO-disc shape hats. The strength of the pieces are unique on their own, yet when tied together they create an incredible array of shapes; straight from an intriguing planetary scene.
