The anatomy of a gourd shaker

I started this weekend on a gourd shaker for someone who is a dear friend of my Aunt. When asked what she wanted she said something celestial.  So I thought this was appropriate.  The beading and trim are completing the shaker.  This person is very much against using animal products on anything she buys so this shaker utilizes only non animal trim.  The beads are glass, the trim is faux suede and the shaker “head” is a gourd.    It turned out quite nice   It has been an interesting project to work on!
