This is a 16 inch shamanic drum made from Red Deer rawhide and is a really special drum in that it was birthed at the time of the ‘Harvest’ Full Moon. It holds a Dragonstone crystal in it’s handle.
Dragonstone is also knows as Wild Serpentine, and it brings with it the energy of calming and nurturing. A grounding stone, it helps you to keep your feet firmly planted supporting you to move forward. Dragonstone can quieten the inner critic and help keep an open mind. It enhances keen perception, encourages involvement with whatever you turn your mind to and boosts personal power.
The tension ring is wrapped in a suede and the fluffy fabric finishes off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.
This drum comes with a beater.

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. The Red Deer hide used to make this drum is from Scotland and 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.
The energy of Red Deer:
When we encounter the Red Deer in the wild, our breath catches and we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. We can draw on their energy to give us the power to deal with challenges with grace. As Red Deer holds a real gentleness, we can be sensitive and intuitive was we walk our path. We can also hold onto vigilance and also adaptability, with the ability to change direction quickly should we need to. Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures.
