The beautiful beater above is decorated with brown/gray rabbit and a striking (pun intended) cream/gray coyote
fur, top grain brown leather and grey suede, braided jute and beadwork on the shaft, and more beadwork hanging from the handle.
Note: This beater is not for sale. It is my personal beater.
This order specified two beaters: "One red & white, and the other black, red & white." Here is what I built.
Beater in purple and white. White rabbit fur is complimented by purple suede and fine white rope. The grip is wrapped
in purple leather. The matching beadwork is wood and glass with one large multi-colored glass bead. See pic below for detail
of beads... SOLD

This beater is a green version of my purple beater. Some beautiful fine matching beadwork is at the center of the
shaft and some green hemp wraps the back end of the grip. The beadwork hanging from the end is in wood, glass and metal. A
closeup of this beadwork appears below...SOLD

This tan and brown beater has a touch of blue. The tan rabbit fur beater head is tied off with piece of rust-colored
suede lacing. Brown Italian leather continues down the shaft followed by wrappings of blue hemp. The second piece of rabbit
fur is followed by tan suede on the grip. The beadwork is of wood, glass, copper, and resin with a Peruvian ceramic bead.

My denim beater! Light blue denim gives the beater head a sound that's somewhere between leather and fur. The playing
head is tied off with soft deerskin lacing followed by some brown Italian leather. Some very simple beadwork hangs from deerskin
lacing in the center of the shaft followed by a beautiful piece of brown rabbit fur, blue hemp lacing and more denim on the
The Harley. The beater above was a challenging design. Top grain black leather, black feathers and beads with just a
touch of color. A friend suggested that this one would make an excellent stocking stuffer for anyone into leathers and whips
and such...sorta lends another meaning to the word "beater", doesn't it? ;-) It's a beautiful piece with a very
loud voice. SOLD
Another 'special order': White leather and four furs! Begin with a white leather beater head tied off in deerskin. Add
three pieces of rabbit fur...white, medium gray and dark gray. Wrap shaft in deerskin and add a thick hank of tan coyote
White rabbit fur is complimented by thick brown top grain leather. The grip is done in thick brown suede. Some simple
metal and wood beadwork and feathers hang from suede lacing in the middle. The smaller piece of fur in the center has a light
touch of grey. A subtle and beautiful beater.
NOTICE: As fast as I post pictures of my beaters on this page, they get sold. Much simpler to custom-build them. Same price.
