Details

Purple Heart and Vietnam Veteran Service Medal Ribbon Beaded Hat band #BHB-060A-11

This hatband was recently purchased, so I do not have one currently available. The photos listed are of my Purple Heart hatband in progress and before adding the leather ends. Please contact me if you would like me to bead one like it for you, since this one sold. Please read customer feedback under More Info below this description. Thanks for your interest.

It includes accurate reproduction of Military Service Medals, including the Purple Heart. If you served our Country in the Vietnam War or have a loved one who served, and received the Purple Heart Medal, 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 loom 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. It includes the Purple Heart, 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, 335 rows, incorporating 3,685 size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in nine colors of purple, 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 deer hide tabs will finish at 23¼ long. 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 1/8 to 7 3/8s and larger.

This hatband is patterned by myself, and 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.

A must have for all Vietnam Veterans, who were awarded the Purple Heart Medal! Add it to your cart today.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I added the Purple Heart Military Medal Ribbon to the Vietnam Ribbon Hatband to honor those who were awarded the Purple Heart for being injured during service.

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!!
