This powerful little drum was birthed on 2/2/22.
The hide was soaked in shungite water in the energies of February's full snow moon. I held ceremony for the skins outside during Storms Dudley and Eunice.
The face of the drum has interesting patterns and almost looks as if the storm clouds are moving across the drum.
I work in scared space and do three days of ceremony with the deer hide and the ash hoop. I call in the directions, the elements, the energies of the plants and the sun and moon.
I journey to the spirit of the deer and the tree to honour them, thank them and ask for permission to make the drum. I also work to clear any trauma the animal and the tree may have suffered during their lifetime.
Your drum will be cleared in ceremony before being sent out to you so it will arrive with you ready to connect with your heartbeat.
You'll also receive a handmade felt drum beater stuffed with local sheep' wool and instructions on how to care for your drum and how to connect with her.
