Billy Jack Hat Band Replica of Original Billy Jack Beaded Hatband Long
Native American Style Beaded Hatband, beaded on loom.
My Replica of the Original Billy Jack Hat Band, designed for the larger sized hats. This particular hat band, described here, was my customized pattern for DAVID STEWART of Georgia (in Photo #3), who wears a Size 8 Hat. His hatband was custom ordered. An additional 30 rows had to be added to lengthen it. It was most recently ordered by Ronald Vari of Florida on Dec. 16, 2013, who also wears a Size 8 Hat. Since it is a custom length, I do not have one currently available.
The one described here is a custom hatband for the larger sized hats. For average sized hats or smaller please see my other listing.
My patterned hatband is a very accurate replica of The Original BILLY JACK HAT BAND worn by Tom Laughlin in the movie Billy Jack, but with about a US $200.00 Savings, of this hat band selling in Canada and elsewhere for US $375.00!
It finished with 295 Rows total, and (26.125 in length)(30 rows more than the original.)I was unable to include a photo of it displayed on a hat, as I don't have a size 8 hat, however there is a photo of the back where it ties together.
This version is 15-lines wide, finishing to scale of original at 7/8" wide with 295 rows, incorporating 4,425 individual size 11/0 quality glass seed beads, (as opposed to the 3,975 in the original) in six colors of White, 3 shades of Blue, Yellow and Red.
If you need one similar in length to this longer version to fit a size 7 5/8 hat, 7 3/4 hat, 7 7/8 hat or size 8 hat, like for this Custom Order, Please add to your cart an purchase it, and then contact me with your hat size, and I'll be more than happy to bead you your custom beaded hatband, sized to fit you. This takes approximately 14-21 days to complete, depending on my beading schedule.
Thank you for visiting my beadwork studio. This is a great hat band that will get noticed and you will receive many compliments.
Although I am NOT of Native American Descent, I have a love for Native American Beadwork, and have beaded commissioned beadwork for several Native Americans themselves.
I have been a freelance loom beader, maker of hatbands, since 2001 and am not affiliated with anyone or the Official billyjack.com website in Canada. I sold my first Billy Jack Hatband in 2003.
My hatband is of supurb quality at a fraction of the cost. This longer version takes me about 20 hours to complete and retails for $190.00 (a fraction of $375.00), sold elsewhere, and you get to see actual photos of what you are purchasing, plus the beadwork won't just go half way around your hat.
This Billy Jack hat band, patterned by myself, 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.
