I was looking for something just truly unique on our trip and stopped in an art gallery in the Denver airport and found your artwork. I have my Raku rattle next to my workspace and when I need to slow down or count my blessings, I pick it up and it gives me a great deal of pleasure and brings calm to my day.

Voted a top 10 gift by retailers of the body, mind, and spirit marketplace, innerSpirit Rattles spark joy with their earthy beauty, gentle sound, and meaningful story cards. Old-style American craft, we sell to galleries, gift shops, and mail order catalogs as well as in our own online shop.
Infused with the joy of a small child’s treasure hunt, the wabi-sabi aesthetic of a Japanese tea master, and a powerful gratitude from the vast Chihuahuan Desert, innerSpirit Rattles are a palmful of happiness.
Made in a land far far away, in rural America, in the land of the Prada Marfa and Big Bend National Park, there is arguably a unique energy springing from the vast and peaceful area. The remote and rugged desert landscape has a curious way of reinforcing faith, dredging up an unknown inner strength, and stirring deep appreciation for even the simplest things.
This feeling is a gift that maybe (just maybe) is captured inside the shell of each innerSpirit Rattle. Perhaps it’s an aura that seeps in, or a sticky essence picked up while being formed by hand one-by-one in a land of gratitude.
If you aren’t convinced of the power of the Big Bend area, consider the playful orbs of light that skip and dance along the plains of Marfa, TX. For over a hundred years, try as they might, scientists still can’t explain them.
Gift boxed with a story card that reads: American Indians used rattles to ensure blessings upon their crops. Use your rattle to help rattle some rain into your life, some rain out of your life, to rattle your worries away, or (if you insist) just to keep your papers from blowing astray. Shake to the rhythm of your favorite music, or the beat of your own drum.
