Accurate Reproduction of U.S. Military Service Medals for Active Service Men or Women or Veterans of the Global War on Terrorism Conflict. A great way to display the pride for serving the USA, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and everyday, when not in uniform!

One of my Original America Military Ribbon Designs.
All my beaded hat bands are individually hand beaded on my handmade oak loom, by myself personally.

A WORK OF ART ~ HEIRLOOM!

This one was a CUSTOM DESIGN, I patterned from the U.S.A.s original U.S. Military Service Medal Ribbon Bars for serviceman Buzz Smith, US Air Force Reserve. The five Medals he chose to include on his hat band are the, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with V, Global War on Terror Expeditionary, Global war on Terror Service Medal, and the Air Force Expeditionary with Gold Border.

This hat band is 1/2" Wide (To scale of original sized 3/8" medal ribbon bars), including the border and is 11-lines (beads) wide, 351 rows, incorporating 3,861 size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in ten colors of Red, White, 3 shades of Blue, 2 shades of Yellow, Bronze Metallic, Gold, and the Bronze Metallic Matte border. Very fine and intricate (but sturdy), with the look and feel of fabric.

Beadwork with deerhide tabs finishes as 23 1/4" long. You then have added length with leather tie to attach hat band around hat. This beautiful Custom original hand-loomed beaded hat band is a great and unique piece.

You and everyone who sees it will be impressed with the quality of this hatband and you will be proud to wear it on your hat. This one will fit all hats sizes 7 1/8 and larger.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

It all started with me designing my Vietnam Military Ribbon hatband, for my brother-in-law, Dennis Thomas. I have now done more than a dozen. I am now thrilled to have reached another generation of Military Personnel. It is an honor and educating in designing and beading these personal hatbands for them.

After seeing a program, in May 2010 on the Military channel called, Tank Battle Vietnam and seeing a guy wearing a black cavalry hat with a military ribbon hat band, he found me on Google and then contacted me through Artfire.

I designed (with his help)and completed this hat band for Buzz Smith, who is currently serving in the US Air Force Reserves.

The medal ribbon bars are accurate to scale and color, as feasibly possible with beads.

It's amazing that I've gotten this opportunity and privilege to bead these custom hat bands, as I would probably have never ran into these great Americans all over the U.S., on the street.

Materials Used

15/0 Quality Japanese seed beads, Brown deerhide

Hey Andrea;
Will be out in Phoenix the beginning of the month at a conference downtown. Then up to the Flagstaff area for a couple of days. The hat will make an appearance with its cool band.

ORDERING AND PURCHASING A BEADED OR BRAIDED HATBAND

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!!
