Here are a few photos-
a short walk to the beach
a hidden spot of maidenhair fern
I prepped and wove a cedar bark wall hanging
and made these tiny clamshell rattles. I love how the sedge is sometimes this yellow- green color.
The following photos will get you started on your own little clamshell rattle. Remember that each shell is different, so the number of stakes you start out with may not be exactly like these photos.
Clamshell with a little rock inside.
Twine 2 rows
Attach to the shell with a rubber band.
Weave another row.
Then, I cut down the length of the stakes, which makes your weaving look a lot nicer. Continue twining, changing materials, if you like. Or add some plaiting with a flat piece. (This is yellow cedar bark.) Finish off with the rim of your choice. Send me a photo of your rattle!
