Each of my hand-made shamanic medicine rattles are made out of deer, cow, horse or buffalo hide, sewed with pieces of the same hide. I do my best to purchase hide from a source where the animal was killed by honourable death, usually through a drummaker or another shaman. The design of the rattles varries, some will be decorated with rabbit or recycled fur, leather strings, feathers or wooden or ceramic beads. I try to stay to natural products as much as possible. Handpainted, not varnished.
Made of natural dry tree branches, unprocessed, or antler if I have some available. Rattles are either filled with dry beans, corn or lentils.
Please note! Painting is not varnished, avoid getting it wet as moisture will destroy the paining and will soften the hide and thus cause a damage to the rattle. Rattle will be posted with track and trace postal service in a box to avoid a damage.
