I made one of these before, but, alas, as with many of my things it got lost in my move north. So I had been wanting to make another, and finally I did!
A Sistrum is an ancient musical and magickal instrument. It was used in Egypt and before. Priestesses of Hathor used them in their offices.
They are now used to both help raise energy and disperse unwanted or blocked energy.
They can be made of wood or metal, can have wire or wood that the bells, clappers are on. I like the beads on this one, I like the fact that it makes a *shhush shusshing* sound along with a gentle clinking.
My next one I want to find more bell like clappers for it, and perhaps make it differently.
