A hat for an Archchancellor

I'd recently been asked to make a hat suitable for the Archchancellor of Unseen University, and this is it!
The hat is a blend of wine and claret merino, with a band of shot velvet trimmed with 'vermine' (actually 1940s vintage salvaged mink from an old stole) and then sprinkled with vintage glass beads and silver set jewels.
Hope they like it! I'm rather pleased with it I must say.
