This is a 16 inch shamanic drum made from Reindeer rawhide and is a really special drum in that it was birthed at the time of the November Full Moon, which our Celtic ancestors called the “Dark Moon”. This is the moon which gently leads us into the darker months of the year, when we have time to rest and go within. The lightness of the Reindeer hide reminds us that the long days will soon return once again. The hoop is English Ash waxed with beeswax from rescued bees and we have set a Moonstone crystal in the handle. The tension ring is wrapped in a suede and the fluffy fabric finishes off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.
The energy of Moonstone
As ancient as the moon herself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery and gives us a touchable connection to the magic of the moon. This stone holds the energy of intuition and balance, and since ancient times has been an amulet of protection for travellers, a channel for prophecy and a path to understanding. Our ties to the moon are strong as it governs the tides and rhythms of the Earth with its waxing and waning, and with this influences our emotions, behaviours and spiritual growth. Moonstone calms and relieves stress while releasing love of all kinds.

The energy of Reindeer
The Reindeer has an incredible ability to preserve in difficult environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3000 miles in one season. Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their sure footedness they can support us to utilise our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure footed in any situation, enabling us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realise our dreams.
About the making of this drum
We make our drums from our home on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England. We create the drums in sacred space each drum is birthed through ceremony, over mugwort incense.
We also take great care in the sourcing of our materials. Our Red Deer hides come from Scotland and our Reindeer hides come from Finland. The timber for the Ash hoop is sourced from UK ash and is crafted by a local carpenter in Wigan. The wood has a layer of bees wax to bring out it’ natural grain. The wax is from bees which have been rescued.
