The Biggest and Baddest Maracas in The World

In April of 2006, Etsy held a Co-Production Contest and asked for team entries for handcrafted items. Our 4 man ChaCha Team was quickly formed and we worked for months to create a pair of Giant Maracas for our entry!

Alas, we didn't win the prize---but we worked together and made a fanatastic instrument:

When our creation didn't sell at the reasonable $125 price we wanted, they were donated to a children's museum in Washington state. I learned alot about instruments, percussion, salsa music, assemblage projects, bead construction, various materials and conducting a team. It was a very fulfilling endeavour!
