The crispine hat is a variation of a caul, snood, balzo or coif. Beaded Elizabethan crispine hats are bedazzled diamond mesh nets that slip over hair buns. These hairnets served dual purposes, holding hair back and dressing the hair up, as they were adorned with stone, pearl and crystal beads. To make your own beaded Elizabethan crispine hat, add tiny jewelled beads to a basic hairnet.
