Thunderbird Beaded Hat Band ~ Native American Style Beaded Hatband


This Thunderbird Beaded Hatband Pattern was a custom order and specifically designed for Jeff Brinkley of Tennessee, so there is not one currently available. If you would be interested in having one similiar beaded for you, please contact me. One can be beaded in 10-14 days, depending on my current bead schedule.


The pattern is a 15-bead wide design. It will finish at 11/16" wide with 335 rows, incorporating 5,025 individual tiny size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in 4 colors of, Blue Turquoise, Red, Bone and Brown.

It was finished neatly with Brown deerhide ends . No glueing over beadwork like some, and at 23 1/2" in length. You then have a long matching deerhide lacing/tie to attach the hatband around the crown of your hat.

This attractive hatband with the feel of fabric will look great on and add a Touch of Class to that special hat. This one was completed in length to fit the custom hat size of 7 1/4, for Jeff.

My beadwork is quality American-made Craftsmanship. My hat bands come with my 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.

Please see comment from customer under "MORE INFO" below, once he received this hatband.


Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

We corresponded with emails for about 3 weeks before he placed his custom order.
Correspondence from Jeff, for Custom Order:

From:Jeff Brinkley on Sunday 4/21/13 To: Andrea Walker
I want a thunderbird in the front in red. I like the turquoise as the background and then some type of Native American design around the sides/back. I like arrows but I'm open. The other color I like is brown if it could be worked in but the turquoise and red are a definite. Jeff

From:Jeff Brinkley on Monday, 4/22/13 To: Andrea Walker
Hi Andrea; I wear a size 7 1/4 hat. My inspiration for this is that I have a very strong spiritual connection to Native Americans, nature, animals, etc. I also believe in energy transfer meaning what a person is thinking/feeling when an object is made transfers into it so I appreciate the craftsmanship.


*The completed hatband seen above in this listing, is the hatband pattern I designed and beaded on my loom for Jeff, with his specifications. I'm glad to say, he was very pleased with it, once it arrived.
