Announcement    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ANNOUNCEMENT, IMPORTANT INFORMATION INCLUDED!
First let me say, when you buy from me you are receiving a genuine Johnny Blackbird, American made, hand woven, beaded hat band and NOT A KNOCK OFF. They are becoming more and more common. I should be flattered but I am disturbed by how many people are losing their medicine along with their honor. My designs came to me as a revelation and story of our spirits continuing journey. Now back to business! My beaded hat bands are all handmade, loom woven and designed by me. When wearing a Johnny Blackbird hat band you share in the medicine and the story of spirits journey from the stars and back to the stars. All things complete the great circle that our star mother set in motion. My hat bands include a story card and a small feather bundle but more importantly they are woven in an atmosphere of peace and happy medicine. Since they are all made to order be sure and include the exact circumference measurement of your hats crown in inches. NOTE: Please do not order a hat band on size speculation. Please measure the hat you wish to place it on before ordering. Actual size can vary by manufacturer. Measuring is easy. Remove the current band and with a cloth tape or a string measure the crown (where the crown meets the brim) and that`s the crown size. Provide me with that measurement in the notes section. I will make your hat band within a 1/2 to 1/4 inch of that size for a nicely finished and well fitted look. Spider Mothers, Turtles and Medicine birds can not be made smaller than 23 inches in length. The cost of a hat band is $135.00 to $145.00 and they take 6 days to complete once started. I have a monthly special. This is a hat band I choose and list it for $90.00 ( a $45.00 savings ). Still have a question? Contact me johnny [!at] dancingblackbird.com or text to Phone number 1-520-465-3237

Little old man walking on his chosen path

I learned how to bead hat bands and bracelets when I was young. Then I was guided by my ancestors to make the story bands part of my journey through the illusion which has continued for 70 years now. The story is simple but strong, it is basically the spirits travel from the stars and back to the stars. My medicine flows around my bands in the circle created on the hat. My shop is cleansed with the smoke of sage and pine every morning so my hat bands carry only a sense of peace and happiness with them. My encouragement comes from within and I hope I can make everyone I come in contact with smile. Johnny Blackbird American made, Prairie Band and veteran
