Native American Style Custom Beaded Hat Band~Native American Geometric Design Beaded Hatband

Since these hatbands were a custom order, I do not currently have one made up and available. Please contact me if you would like one similar, custom made for you. Eric McKinley from Orlando, FL is the most recent customer to order this hatband on 6-2-15. Please see customers comments below, under MORE INFO after receiving their hatbands.

A wide hatband like this one listed here takes about 36 hours to complete, about 14 days, depending on my beading schedule.

These two hatbands were patterned from a photo of a design provided by the customer, Smythe, Inc.

These hatbands were for a special order, April 2014. I was contacted by Womenswear Co-Designers of Smythe, Inc., based in Canada who were designing two hats for the Calgary Stampede for the Department Store, Holt Renfrew. They sent me a photo of the design and were wanting two identical hatbands, approximately 1 ½" Wide. I then had to figure out and pattern and design their photo into a bead pattern. The end result is the hatbands in progress you see here.

All my beaded hat bands are individually hand beaded on my handmade oak loom, by myself personally, unless did in peyote stitch.

"A WORK OF ART ~ HEIRLOOM!"

These photos shown are photos of the hat bands in progress. The first photo is front and center of the hat, followed by side view and the ends, before I attached the black deer hide leather ends.

Completed these hat bands for a size 6 7/8 hat were 31-beads wide, finishing at 1 3/8" wide with 313 rows, incorporating 9,703 individual size 15/0 quality glass seed beads each, in four colors of White, Red, Blue Turquoise and Black. Hatbands like this in a longer length for larger sizes, would consists of well over 10,000 beads each.

They were finished with black deer hide tabs and ties and 22 3/8 inches, in length for the custom size of a small 6 7/8's Hat. They were complimented with the addition of matching colors of Vintage Czech Molded Glass Padre Beads, from my collection (while supply lasted).

This impeccable beaded hat band is a class act and would compliment any hat size, custom ordered.

This beaded hat band comes with a Certificate of Authenticity Card, and a guarantee of being handmade by me, with my signature, date, and future contact information.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This was a great opportunity for me. These hatbands were for a special order. I was contacted by Womenswear Co-Designers of Smythe, Inc., based in Toronto, Canada (Smythejackets.com), who were designing two hats for the Calgary Stampede 2014 for the long standing Department Store, Holt's, Holt Renfrew. They requested two identical hatbands which I patterned from their design photo and beaded for them, to be displayed up and through the Calgary Stampede 2014 and then put up for auction.

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!!
