This 18″ Shamanic Drum was birthed at Samhain, the really special time of year as we move to the dark nights, marking the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. This drum is made from Red Deer hide, the hoop is English Ash waxed with bees wax from rescued bees and we have set a Smokey Quartz crystal in the handle.
Smokey Quartz was used by our Celtic ancestors, and it holds a a rare and beautiful transparency that draws light into shades of black and brown. It brings with it strength and stability and a grounding force.
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 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.
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.
