Replica of Rolling Thunder Medicine Man Beaded Hat Band ~ Earthtone

This hat band is my replica of the beaded hatband worn by Rolling Thunder, a Cherokee, Shoshone Medicine Man, in the photo on the back cover of dust jacket from the book, Rolling Thunder by Doug Boyd.

Intertribal medicine man Rolling Thunder (1916-1997) was a healer, teacher, visionary, and activist who rose to popularity in the 1960s and '70s through his friendship with artists such as Bob Dylan and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead and as the inspiration for the Billy Jack films. Eyewitness accounts of his remarkable healings are legend, as are those of his ability to call forth the forces of nature, typically in the form of thunder clouds.

"Rolling Thunder Medicine Man Beaded Hat Band Replica"

This geometric design beaded hat band, titled Rolling Thunder, I patterned from viewing the photo of Rolling Thunder wearing his original. The photo is from his autobiograpy book titled "Rolling Thunder".

This hatband was just ordered by repeat customer, William Stell, of McLean, Virginia on 6/21/18, so there is currently not one completed and available. Please contact me if you would like me to custom bead you one for your hat size. It usually can be beaded and shipped within 10-14 days, depending on my current beading orders. Please see comments from customers below, under MORE INFO, before and after receiving their hatbands.

Since no color photo of the original hat band is available, I offer it in two different color choices. In the books photo, Rolling Thunder is wearing a white or possibly a light bone colored straw hat and a dark shirt, possibly dark brown. The color of the geometric diamond is unable to be decided for sure.

This hatband is 19-beads wide, finishing at 13/16" wide with 330 rows, incorporating 6,270 individual size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in three colors. In this replica I am using EARTH-tone colors of Dark (Chocolate) Brown, Bone and Medium Tan (Taupe). The other replica of this hatband pattern is beaded, using Black, White and Turquoise, see other listing. If you like this hatband design and would like me to replicate it for you, using a different color for the diamond, or different colors all together, please feel free to contact me.

It can be finished with Dark Brown or Natural deer hide leather ends and ties and this one was approximately 23.25 inches, in length. This impeccable beaded hatband design is a link to history past and is a class act that will compliment and fit hat size 7 1/8 and larger, nicely.

All my beaded hat bands are individually hand beaded on my handmade oak loom, by myself personally, unless did in peyote stitch. This one will take about 20 hours to complete, 1 bead at a time.

"A WORK OF ART ~ HEIRLOOM!"

The first photo is of Rolling Thunder Medicine Man wearing his original hat band, from the dust jacket cover of the book.

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