The solid sound of this olive green gourd rattle will be appreciated by the musician in your life. It's beaded using a knotless netting technique that dates back to the Vikings. The rattle fits comfortably in the hand and has a leather strap to help hold it securely.

This instrument started with one of my organically grown hard-shelled gourds. The best 4 cord light lime green Irish waxed linen was woven over the gourd with a plastic bead on each stitch. The weaving and beads create a beautiful pattern. When shaken, the beads hit the woody gourd surface which produces a wonderful clear rattling tone! Plastic beads are considered the standard for shekere-style instruments. The seeds inside the gourd produce a soft sound that can be heard when shaken if the bulb of the gourd is held.

Approx. 8" long, 8" circumference at widest point (203.2mm long, 203.2mm circumference at widest point) Gourd is dyed and has a protective finish.

An exciting rhythm instrument for any musician, singer, story teller or collector. Also fine for older kids who love to make music. Not a toy for baby.
