Years ago I had attend a few Renaissance Fairs
and I saw the employees break into a Drum Circle as the guests were leaving.
I wanted to join in!
Once I got into the business of traveling about to the Fairs,
I was able to attend a few and was enchanted.
Then, in the 1990s,
I began to sell my work at a variety of Events
and attended drum circles after dark.
After watching for several months,
a drum was thrust into my hands and I was hooked!
All my music background gave me a launch pad
into the fray of rhythm and dance.
The opportunity to drum with others was liberating,
I found myself being a part of music like I have never experienced before.
I met Freedom:
a Drummer that taught me this kind of music,
then Bezel, Night Hawk and Tawny, Kelly and Miguel.
I found it hard to concentrate on my jewelry creations
between drum circles;
always leaning towards the down beat of every manifestation of sound.
Freedom inspired me to create the “Drummer”
a small amulet that is actually a tiny sculpture
of a little fellow drumming on a Djembe.
From there I created a host of dancers;
I created an entire set of these little people,
designed to hang on a chain or cord around your neck or bracelet
or attach to a drum.
And then finely a couple of years ago
a young lady requested that I make a “Drummer girl”
and so I did.
The dancers were inspired by people I have seen around the fire over the years:
The flowing Lady,
Man Astride, Amy, and more.
These Amulets of the Drum Circle
may be used as charms for your drum;
components to your charm bracelet hang on a jacket or as a pendant around your neck.
They are meant for those that love the drum,
rhythm and music in general.
They are meant to evoke exuberant cooperation,
spontaneous creativity and Joy.
