Hand Made Rattle

When you sit in the circle of me doing the making-work on your behalf...you are still stepping into a sacred space guided by the spirit of the animal who died. There is no separation.

When I make a rattle for you, its unique spirit comes forward to be birthed into the rattle body. I work with this spirit to adorn it with the medicine it needs to support you. I listen its energy to create the sound in the rattle that expresses its voice. I complete the ceremony of a rattle's birth by imbuing the spirit of the rattle into the rattle body and then let it nest for a day or two while I sing over it, filling it with blessings and magic.

Like the drums, rattles are only offered when I have the hides. I do not order and rehydrate the hides I work with. All hides come from either hunters I know or my own kills. The hides then go into the freezer ‘green’ to retain their life and integrity until it's time for me to work them.

For every hide I work, more rattles are made than drums. This keeps the rattle wait-lists moving more quickly and sometimes allows for the gift of inventory that you can order and begin right away. If rattles are sold out, be sure to contact me to be put on the waitlist.
