We have partially retired. All beadwork is by custom order only. Please call 256-538-0246 to place an order. Thank you. Cheryl and Keith
We provide a FREE DRUM STICK (also called drum mallet or drum beater) with every drum. The free stick is our basic stick shown above, a $20.00 value. You can also upgrade to a native american drum mallet with a padded and fringed leather handle or even a custom beaded stick (for an additional $20.00 when you purchase a drum).
Drums sticks, especially custom beaded sticks make wonderful gifts for friends in your drum circle!
Every custom stick is beaded using the peyote stitch, applied one bead at a time. Sticks are beaded by CUSTOM ORDER ONLY. We do not carry any beaded drum sticks in stock.We charge $45.00 per inch of beadwork. Please note that Cheryl has won competition ribbons for her beaded drumsticks, so you are assured of the finest quality beadwork. Beaded drum sticks take 3-4 weeks for completion due to our schedule. Call to discuss bead colors, patterns and designs.
We also carry powwow drum sticks, build from fiberglass rods. We can build your powwow drum beater to any length you specify, but we typically make our sticks 16" - 18" long. Powwow drum sticks come with fringed leather handle and a soft head, which we think sounds best on the drum. Powwow sticks: $60.00 each.

Chose Leather Color for Beaded Drum Stick
POWWOW DRUM STICK
Crafted from a fiberglass rod for flexibility, this BEATER has a leather covered and fringed handle and padded beater head. This is the preferred stick for our larger powwow drums. If beaded, I add all beadwork near the handle of powwow sticks. The stick is often used to tap the drum (during Grass Dance songs), and these are czech glass beads, which will break.
