Beaded Eye Of The Medicine Man Hat Band
Beaded Eye Of The Medicine Man Hat Band
The meaning of the Eye of a Medicine Man is a very powerful symbol. The outer lines of the symbol represents the four corners of the Universe - North, South, East and West of the physical world. The inner lines represent the Spirit world, which the Medicine Man had knowledge of. The center circle represents the Eye of the Medicine Man and his spiritual vision.
This Beaded Hat Band with the Eye of a Medicine Man symbol is beaded with beautiful Southwestern colors. The shades of blue and the colors of red, black, cream and white blend beautifully in this intricate beaded hat band . This hat band is not just jewelry for your hat but a work of art that will turn many heads when you wear it!
This beaded hat band is made up of tiny glass beads that measure about 1 mm each. Using such a small bead allows me to get a large amount of detail in such a small amount of area.
Each end of the beaded hat band is hand sewn to black stained leather and ties in the back with a black hand braided leather cord decorated with a sterling silver slider bead. The sterling slider bead is made by hand. I cut, shape, and polish each sterling bead by hand. Each end of the leather braid is a sterling silver tip with a horse hair tassel that I also make by hand. I cut and polish each sterling silver tip and insert horse hair into each end. I have beaded a finished edge across the top and bottom of the hat band, Within this finished edge I used a beaded thread that has 10 pounds of tensile strength. The hat band measures 22 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide.
I'm sure you will enjoy wearing and showing off this beautiful hat band.
This beaded hat band will make a very special gift for that someone special in your life. Each beaded hat band is shipped to you in an attractive gift box and with a certificate of Authenticity.
Thank you for looking at my beaded jewelry.

THE UKTENA AND THE ULÛÑSÛ′TĬ
Long ago—hĭlahi′yu—when the Sun became angry at the people on earth and sent a sickness to destroy them, the Little Men changed a man into a monster snake, which they called Uktena, “The Keen-eyed,” and sent him to kill her. He failed to do the work, and the Rattlesnake had to be sent instead, which made the Uktena so jealous and angry that the people were afraid of him and had him taken up to Gălûñ′lătĭ, to stay with the other dangerous things. He left others behind him, though, nearly as large and dangerous as himself, and they hide now in deep pools in the river and about lonely passes in the high mountains, the places which the Cherokee call “Where the Uktena stays.”
