I love my little spirit shaker. I have it propped up beside my computer, so I can see it everyday, all day. It's a peaceful, little soul.


Fun item.

We have many musicians among our family and friends. We have many impromptu "jam sessions" and this shaker can be used by anyone, even children. We have all enjoyed it,More > < Less

bought 3. one for friend that just went thru hurricane Irma one for my Daughter in law undergoing chemo and the third for my friend who lives lives in Northern Maine and is having job problems. It is very, very difficult to part with these. They absolutely make your heart smile as soon as you touch them.

About Spirit Shakers

Melodius Magic

It’s hard to explain the appeal of these animated figures, which are filled with a mysterious (and melodious) substance. But they have a way of becoming just what you need them to be: a charming palm rattle, a calming influence when your mind is racing, or a source of good spirits when you need a lift.

The creator is Jon Baring-Gould, who makes these ceramic shakers by hand. Each one has a distinctly expressive face. With just a few deft impressions and cuts in the clay, Jon creates a personality for each palm-sized shaker.

An artist and educator, Jon has been making spirit shakers for about a decade. He was inspired by a spirit shaker made from a gourd that he received as a gift from a witch many years ago. If you’re feeling contemplative, want to make some tickling music, or want to encourage some happy thoughts, why not let Jon’s spirit shakers move you? They also make a great gift for someone who could use a bit of cheer or to celebrate any happy occasion.
