Product Description
Native American Style Beaded Hatband, beaded on loom.

My Replica of the Original Billy Jack Hat Band, made in the USA.

This hatband was just ordered by Anthony Hernandez, of San Antonio, TX on 7/19/14, so there is currently not one completed and available. Please contact me if you would like me to custom bead you one for your hat size. It usually can be beaded and shipped within 7-14 days, depending on my current beading orders. Please see several feed backs below, under MORE INFO, from customers who purchased this hat band. This is one of my most popular hatbands, and sometimes difficult to keep one always available.

My patterned hatband is a very accurate replica of The Original BILLY JACK HAT BAND worn by Tom Laughlin in the movie Billy Jack, but with about a $200 Savings, of this hat band selling in Canada and elsewhere for $375!

It is 15-lines wide, finishing to scale of original at 7/8" wide with 265 rows, incorporating 3,975 individual size 11/0 quality glass seed beads, in six colors of White, 3 shades of Blue, Yellow and Red.

This regular sized hatband will be finished with quality black deer hide ends and a matching tie, and 23 1/2 inches in length or longer. This accurate reproduction is an exquisite beaded hat band and will compliment and fit hat sizes 7 1/4 and larger. Possibly a smaller 7 1/8 hat, depending on your measurement.

Custom Made to Order, A shorter version of this hatband, was purchased by Nukus Bear of Oklahoma. If you need the shorter version, 22 3/4, for a size 6 7/8s or size 7, just add it to your cart and purchase it here on this listing, and I can bead it and ship it within 7-10 days, depending on my beadwork schedule. Then message me by clicking on Contact Seller at top right hand side of this page, and let me know you are purchasing the shorter version.

If needing the longer version to fit a size 7 5/8 hat, 7 7/8 hat or size 8 hat,, Like for David Stewart, PLEASE CLICK ON MY OTHER LISTING, priced at $190 and purchase it, and then contact me with your hat size, and I will be more than happy to bead you your custom beaded Billy Jack hat band, sized to fit you.

Although I am NOT of Native American Descent, I have a love for Native American Bead work, and have beaded commissioned bead work for several Native Americans themselves. Some with comments below.

I have been a freelance loom beader, maker of hatbands, since 2001 and am not affiliated with anyone or the Official billyjack.com website in Canada. I sold my first Billy Jack Hatband in 2004, and have sold several of the improved version that you see here since.

This hatband is of superb quality at a fraction of the cost. It takes me about 18 hours to complete and retails for US $180.00 (a fraction of US $375.00), sold elsewhere, for the standard length and you get to see actual photos of what you are purchasing.

Please click on photos in this listing, to show you what the hatbands looks like when I remove it from the loom, with all the warp threads, before I attach the deer hide leather ends.

This Billy Jack hat band, patterned by myself, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity Card, with a guarantee of being meticulously handmade by me, entirely on a bead loom with my signature and date, and future contact information.

LET THIS BEADED HATBAND GIVE NEW LIFE TO YOUR HAT!
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
I patterned my first Billy Jack Hat Band design in 2003 by viewing the movie, on VHS, over and over and freeze-framing it to see different angled views of the hatband. (Before DVDs) By doing this, I was able to figure out the colors used and what size beads were used, by how many times the pattern was repeated.

Since my first Billy Jack Hat band sold in 2004, I have made a few adjustments to the pattern and perfected it even more. With new technology I was able to see better photos of the hat band close up.

I Then took on the joy of doing the beaded loom-work that you see here. I am the original designer and pattern maker of this, more authentic replica of the Billy Jack Hat Band, like the one worn by Tom Laughlin in the Movie.

Andrea,

I was out of town with my sisters and elderly parents last week. We were in Branson, Missouri listening to music.

When I got back, there they were. The most amazing pieces of art. The detail and craftsmanship put into each hatband the likes of which are rarely, very rarely seen.

I want to thank you for the care and concern to detail that you so obviously put into each piece. The information provided and the gift of the vintage beads on the leather tie are most appreciated. It has been one of the best buying experiences I have ever had.

Thank you for sharing with me the talent that God gifted to you. Best regards, Buck

Note* Buck ordered two Billy Jack Hat Bands on 10/10/13. One for himself and the other as a gift for his co-worker, a horse riding preacher that works with hospice patients. Amazing man with a kind spirit.

Thanks very much for the bio Andrea. Well I went down to Sumas WA this morning after my graveyard shift and picked up the band and I am absolutely thrilled with it! Great job!

I also appreciate you sending along the business cards. Thanks very much for everything. The people where I work are really excited about seeing it. I was guessing the original design was Navajo. I think there is a connection between some of the tribes here on Canadas west coast and the Navajo some how. I think the Navajo might be the sister tribe of these guys up here, so they are really excied to see it.

Thanks again,Mike

Dear Andrea:
I just got back to the Monastery, from the Reservation. I Love the Hatband!!!!!!!!!
I am wearing it now. I have had no trouble keeping it in place. My hats do not blow off in the wind. I milked 50 head of cows this morning and it never fell off!

Again, thank you for all your kindness!
