We handcraft our spirit shakers from the left-over hearts of our boxes. They fit nicely in the palm of your hand for shaking up, calming, and filling your spirit with music. We use sustainably harvested Oregon woods and non-toxic materials. We finish all of our woodworking with Clapham's Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish and we NEVER use stains. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. If you would like to see more of our boxes, rattles and spirit shakers please click on our link http://www.earnestefforts.etsy.com to enter our Etsy shop. Wholesale prices are available upon request.

We gave the spirits the name "spirit shakers" because we have witnessed that the essence of the living tree continues to live on in the spirit shaker bringing peace, joy & laughter to those who handle and experience them. They have been used for meditation, music, shamanism and other spiritual journeys.

We have created a fun music video to allow you to get an idea of what our spirit shakers sound like. Remember, no two spirit shakers will feel or sound the same, but we will always choose the most beautiful and lovely sound. To listen to our spirit shaker music video visit

These photographs are a representation of our cherry spirit shakers. Because each spirit is individually crafted no two spirits are ever the same. The cherry spirit you receive will be your own unique piece of mother nature's beauty. The photos were take in a cherry tree in our garden. The second photo shows the label that comes with each spirit. The third photo is of the cherry tree in our garden. The fourth photo is of our shop the "Sawdust Cathedral" where we create all of our treasures. The final photo is of us - Earnie, Ellie & Myrtle the wonder dog on the Coquille River collecting driftwood.

Our spirit shakers are approximately .75" x 2" x 3" and weigh approximately 3 ounces.
