A few years ago a family friend's daughter began ski racing. The family can often be found in the mountains on the slopes. As I got into blacksmithing we chatted about it and they asked me if I could make them a cowbell to ring as their daughter raced down the slopes. They wanted something loud, with a handle - something better than all the cheap ones you find out there.
After a couple of years of pestering me about it, I finally sat down and designed something unique, loud and comfortable. Hopefully, this winter I'll be able to get out to the slopes and see Cecilia race!
