Exquisite Peyote Native American Style Hat Band Beaded Hatband
This hatband was ordered by Perry Jones of Oregon, on July 5, 2015, so there is not one currently made up, readily available. If you would like one custom made for your hat size, it can be beaded in about 14 days, depending on my current beading schedule. Since this hat band is in Peyote stitch it takes more time than loomed hatbands. Please see comments from customers below under MORE INFO once their hatband arrived
This hat band designed and hand beaded by myself personally, using the peyote stitch instead of on my oak loom. 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 28 hours to complete. Since I have a full-time job, beading 2-3 hours per night, would take about 14 days to complete.
"A WORK OF ART ~ HEIRLOOM!"
This one I patterned similar to the geometrics from my Eagle~Owls Eyes hatband, only I had to incorporate it into peyote beadwork.
This hat band completed is 7/8" wide, with 684 rows, incorporating 5,789 individual size 11/0 quality "Delica" glass seed beads, in six colors of Antique White, Black, Cream, Lt. Olive Matte, Rust and Turquoise. The Vintage Padre Beads on the leather ties in Photo #6 are not included with the hatband. I only have them in limited stock. If you would like them on your leather ties, please contact me before purchase as there is an additional cost of $5, if you'd like me to include them on your band, while supply lasts.
This one finishes at 23 3/4" in length with Natural deer hide tabs and a long deer hide matching tie. This is an exquisite piece of beadwork. 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.
