A Sun Bird, a Sunrise and a Sunset


Couldn’t resist sharing another blog.

Johnny Blackbird manages to capture perfectly, through the woven symbolic imagery of his beaded story hat bands, folklore which is normally passed down through generations by word of mouth. He has found a unique way of communicating stories told to him as a child with his distinctive designs and color choices. Here are two of his latest hat bands where he introduces the Sun Bird. With just a slight variation of colors, one depicts a sunrise and the other, a sunset.

My friend, Johnny, makes the most beautiful beaded hatbands. Each one tells a unique story using symbols and colors within the bead work.  Each Hat band has a different spirit animal on the front of it.  From a Blackbird to a Thunderbird, a Spider Mother or Turtle.  Each tells a story of Spirit which is the energy that drives the animal.

Just recently he introduced the  Dancing Blackbird   to his line of hat bands.  If you get a chance go in and take a look at his Story Hat Bands.
