Chihuahua Mountain King Snake Beaded Hatband - Custom Beaded hat band


Chihuahua Mountain King Snake Beaded Hatband. Native American Style beaded hat band

This hat band was designed on 5/17/18 for a custom order. It was hand beaded by myself personally, using the peyote stitch instead of on my oak loom. Last image is customer’s photo of hatband displayed on his hat, after receiving it!

It's odd count peyote, giving it a natural curve for a crown of a hat. The peyote is like brick laying, only picking up one little bead at a time, and getting the bead to rest in between two beads from the previous row. Peyote is very labor intense. This one takes about 24 hours to complete. Beading 2-3 hours per night, would take about 10-14 days to complete.

If you would like to order one like it for your hat size, just add it to your cart and submit your order and I can bead one for you in the above approximate time frame, depending on my current orders! Thanks for your interest, in advance.


This one I patterned for my previous Customer, Jiri Hlavacek of Las Vegas, NV who asked if I could replicate the Chihuahua Mountain King Snake in his provided photo (Image #2) seen here and incorporate it into peyote beadwork.

This photo also to me looks like the Sonoran Mountain King Snake, (they are in the same family with similar markings) but in my design the black does not merge or “bridge” across the red-orange like in the photo provided and the Sonoran Mountain King Snake?

The photos I’ve seen on the internet of the Chihuahua Mountain King Snake do not show the black markings merging (Image #4), so it was not designed into my design pattern coloring. These two snakes are very similar and would be hard to tell apart to the general public! You the customer, can give your completed Hatband whatever name you want! This one is going to be fun to bead and observe as the snake comes alive, as I bead it! Thankfully not literally!

This hat band completed was 7/8" wide, with 647 rows, incorporating 5,500 individual size 11/0 quality "Delica" glass seed beads, in 3 colors of Red-Orange, Antique White and Black.

This one finished at 23 5/8” in length with Black deer hide tabs and a long deer hide matching tie. It will compliment and fit hat sizes 7 1/4 and larger.

Each of my completed hatbands, comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity with my signature, date, and future contact information.

"LET MY BEADED HATBAND GIVE NEW LIFE TO YOUR HAT" You will be pleased you did!!

I am sorry for any inconvenience, but effective Nov. 2015 all orders seem to have to be processed through signing up or logging in to a PayPal account. This is inconvenient to my customers wanting to send a Postal Money Order or personal check. So if you don't have a PayPal Account or want one, please contact me to tell me which hatband you wish to order and give me your hat's crown measurement and not over any existing hatband or ribbon. Thanks!!
