Harmony Silver Ball Baby Rattle is a rattle that is beautiful to the ears, eyes, and touch. It’s a precious heirloom baby gift – a gleaming, hand tuned, sixteen tone, gently chiming lullaby in sterling silver.
This is not only beautiful, its gently musical tones are highly soothing to stressed bubs. It’s helpful in assisting sleep, and easing stress – for baby and parent. Chiming spheres have been used for meditation and other peaceful pursuits since the ancient Celts.
Chiming spheres later became popular in Mexican culture, which is where Harmony Ball Rattle designer Noel Wiggins first saw them. The New York artist, and former motorbike messenger formed his Harmony Ball Company in the 1980s to import them from Mexico. He has since refined the design for his current company Areaware – for which this was the first product.
Noel Wiggins describes his refined Harmony Silver Ball Baby Rattle as “a combination of function and sculpture”. An American blogger has described it as “twinkling fairy dust”. The Good Store thinks that they’re both right.
This baby rattle is engraveable, and could easily serve a similar purpose to the once-common hand embroidered christening gowns – as a family history heirloom used and passed from generation to generation.
– We suggest this be used in the presence of an adult (more fun anyway)
