Bear, Buffalo, Elk, Horse, and Moose Rawhide Drums and Rattles
Shaman Drums, Rattles, and Kits

I have retired after 20 delightful years of drum making. Click here to see drums from my personal collection.

Drums and Rattles are magical creations that
represent many cultures and traditions. Drums
and Rattles are used in ceremony, healing
rituals, and shamanic journeying.

There are ancient and worldwide traditions of drum
making and rattle making. Beating a drum or
shaking a rattle recalls the primitive to us.

Shaman Drums and Shaman Rattles have been used
in spiritual practices for many hundreds of years
and in nearly every corner of the world.

Each drum is made with a ceremony and blessing.

More About Me

Maker of Medicine Drums and Rattles
I make drums and rattles with prayer and ceremony,
and they are made with respect for the animals
and trees who have given their gifts to us.

I use the "leavings" -- no animal was killed just for its
hide. From each hide, I cut drum skins, drum lacing
and finally rattle heads; nothing is wasted.

Being a drum maker and a rattle maker has been one
of my greatest rewards. I have been doing this
work since I made my first drum in 1999.
