This is everything you would hope for in a rattle. The handle is made soft, and at a great diameter for firm and easy holding. The hide of the rattle is filled with Sacred Creek Rock Fill, in just the right proportion to make a full, pleasing and powerful sound with every shake. The craftsmanship is wonderful. Ever bit of it, including the artwork is handmade by a Native maker and Shaman, a member of a Cree tribe in Northern Canada. It is 9-10 inch length, so it is easy to transport and carry.

This rattle in particular is adorned with a painted representation of a turtle with four directions carried on its shell. The handle is carefully corded with suede, which is then held tight by various tassels with wooden beads.

Each of these rattles are made by hand. Each rattle is an individual work of sacred art by the maker, and there may be little differences between the rattle you see pictured here and the rattle you receive, for example, such as a small altering of the wrap.
