Birthing a rattle

This rattle has been in the making for a little while now. Sometimes both of us know what is going to happen sometimes one of us isn’t sure what the other is communicating. Right now this rattle and I are in a sort of limbo. the rattle body is done and the piece of wood onto which the body will be fastened is finished. But I can not decide on a way to finish, Waxed cord? A little bit of rabbit? feathers?

Interestingly this rattle come out with two colours despite the hide coming from the same animal and having the same dye bath!

Hope to be able to update this soon with the finished item!
