I only accept rattle orders along with drum orders

Rawhide Rattles

Many years ago, I made my first rattle with a piece of rawhide left over from the first drum I made. It was an adventure because I had no guide, only a casual reference from my first teacher.

I have learned a lot since then and have sold hundreds of rattles and rattle kits with fillings of corn, quartz crystals, or ant hill stones from the Posi Ruins in New Mexico.

Collection of Rawhide Rattles

Rattles are a great alternative to drums, and they
are traditional in many societies around the world.

Special Fillings (additional cost)
Quartz Crystals*
Anthill Stones**

Rattle Handles are made with select branches and are
wrapped with Bear, Buffalo, Deer, Elk, or Moose leather.

*Quartz Crystals are a traditional rattle filling in some societies. Quartz Crystal Rattles have a sharper, stronger sound. I import these single and double terminated quartz crystals from several countries.

**Anthill Stones are also a traditional rattle filling. Anthill Stone Rattles have a softer, gentler sound. I collected these stones from abandoned ant nests at the Posi ruins at Ojo Caliente, New Mexico.
