Details

Vietnam Veteran Service Medal Ribbon Beaded Hat band

The most recent purchase of this hatband was from John Chitwood from Oklahoma, 2/9/2020 so I do not have one currently available. If you would like one like it, just add it to your cart and upon checking out, please NOTE YOUR HAT SIZE, and one can be beaded and shipped in 10-14 days depending on my current beading schedule, hat bands ordered and working on.

Please see customer feedback below, under More Info! This is one of my most popular hatbands, and sometimes difficult to keep one always available. The seventh photo in my listing, is when I had a special custom order for "10" of these hatbands, in 2010, for Veteran, Henry Preston of West Palm Beach, Florida. He purchased them to give as gifts to his Vietnam Veteran friends. Lucky them and it was a good commission for me!

It consists of the accurate reproduction of Military Service Medals. If you served our Country in the Vietnam War or have a loved one who served, this is a beautiful piece to be worn on that favorite hat. A great way to display the pride for serving the USA, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Everyday!

All my beaded hat bands are individually hand beaded on my handmade oak loom, by myself personally.

A WORK OF ART ~ HEIRLOOM!

This is My Original design I patterned from the U.S.A.s original U.S. Military Service Medal Ribbon Bars from the Vietnam Era, including the National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal with banner symbolizing the 1960s pin.

This hat band is 1/2" Wide, including the border. (Ribbons are to scale of original sized medal ribbon bars 3/8), plus the border. It is 11-lines wide, 333 rows, incorporating 3,663 size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in eight colors of red, white, blue, yellow, 2 shades of green, pewter and the bronze border. Very fine and intricate (but sturdy), with the feel of fabric.

Beadwork with deerhide tabs finished at 23 5/8" long, for this particular order. You then have added length with leather ties to tie hat band around hat. This beautiful original Vietnam Era hand-loomed beaded hat band is such 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 to 7 3/8s and larger.

A must have for all Vietnam Veterans! Add it to your cart today.

It 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.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I designed this hat band originally for my brother-in-law who served the USA in the military during the Vietnam War.

The medal ribbon bars are accurate to scale and color. Ive beaded several since then and incorporated a few with the Purple Heart medal.

Ive custom beaded one for a Native American man whos father was a Vietnam Veteran and his grandfather was a code talker in WWII.

I have also did a custom hat band for a Navy Vietnam Veteran who served our country for 5 tours in Vietnam, incorporating 13 medals in his hat band.

It is a joy to see their appreciation of this hat band.

Materials Used

Very Tiny size 15/0 Glass Seed Beads and Deer Hide Leather

Hi Andrea,

My husband LOVED his hatband, and so do I. It looks really great on his dark brown cowboy hat. I'm sure he will be referring a lot of customers your way. We were both impressed over the amount of work and detail went into making the hatband. It really is a work of art and of love. We both thank you! Sincerely, Darlene Reichard

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!!
