Shaman Rattle Kits

My first rattle was a great experiment. I had no instructions, just a rattle I had purchased and the stories I had heard. I also had a very nice piece of moose rawhide left over from making my first drum.

The long and short of it is that I did make a great rattle, and I have made hundreds of rattles since. You can make your own wonderful rattle, too.

What if you have never made anything with your hands? I have created step-by-step rattle-making instructions, and my kit includes just about everything you need. Can you make your own rattle from these instructions? Almost certainly, and it is very, very rewarding.

A talented artist made this
rattle from one of my kits.

stone and the leather strips
around the rattle neck.)

Sweat Lodge Buffalo Rattle Kits
I have a small amount of very nice and thick Buffalo Rawhide that enables me to offer
Sweat Lodge Buffalo Rawhide Rattle Kits. Rattles made from
these kits are incredibly strong and durable.

Sparking/Glowing Buffalo Rattle Kits
I have translucent Buffalo Rawhide for use in "Sparking/Glowing" Buffalo Rattle Kits.
Rattles made from these kits, which include small quartz crystals with points,
will faintly and briefly flash in a dark room after hard shaking.
