These are MADE TO ORDER, YOU provide the Glengarry hat I will bead it. This listing is for commissioned beadwork only! In a design of my choosing. This item takes me between 120-150 hours to hand sew. Buyer does get color choice but MUST talk to me about design/colors etc BEFORE purchase to ensure I have colors in stock. If I do not have the colors you desire it is a 6 hour drive (3 hours each way) for me to get a strand of beads from Fort Hall indian reservation. I do NOT buy my beads online I hand pick out my beads to ensure quality of my inventory and desired colors. Beadwork does NOT photograph well your item will be more stunning in person.
The historical Beaded Glengarry is a beautiful site to behold. Originating in the 1700’s with the Mi’Kmaq women these beautiful bonnets attract a LOT of attention and are making a comeback in both Highland/Celtic and Pow wow Circles today and are popular among those of use who are Mixed bloods to show our Bi-Cultural pride.
I use 11 cut seed beads. You may choose between 11 cut glass seed beads or the size 10 glass seed beads.
The cuts shimmer in the light and are higher priced to purchase and a size SMALLER. With beads the larger the number the smaller the bead size.
Please also note to use the menu to the right to select if you would like one side, or both sides beaded and which size beads.
Single side means beadwork is only on ONE SIDE
Double means beadwork on BOTH sides.
Display Glengarry is shown in the Eastern Strawberry pattern. You will get a hat pattern SIMILAR to this using the Negative Space pattern.
If you select Single:
please let me know if you want your beadwork on the Bow/Clan Crest pendant side of your hat OR the plain side of your hat. Thank you.
