Earnest Efforts is a husband and wife team in SW Oregon. Their artwork has been bringing new life to woods discarded by humans and nature for over twenty years. Their rattles are made for the enjoyment of both children and adults. Babies love to teeth and grasp the natural textures of the woods, which are finished with Clapham's beeswax (a non-toxic food-safe finish). They each have beautiful tones for musical accompaniment and are hand-sanded to a fine, smooth texture that can relieve stress like a worry stone. People who have grown up with our rattles are now returning to chose rattles for their own children.
