Charging Jewelry
By: / Novice
Post # 1

Below is a short article describing some different methods of charging magical personal jewelry. This is not a list of all methods possible. Simply a few to start.

Smoking Method:

This method uses smoke from an herb or incense to bless, cleanse and charge. You begin by setting your jewelry on a safe surface. You will smoke the item with incense, all the while focusing on cleansing and blessing. As you continue to drift smoke around the item you will focus on your intent for charging the item. Many like to use a protective intent on personal jewelry. Other intentions may be focused on as well such as attracting prosperity etc.

Energy Method:

With this method for charging jewelry, you will be adding your personal energy to the item. You can add an intention for the item as well if you like. For this I like to lie my jewelry on a safe surface such as a small dish, often I will use a small mirror; and move my hands over the item I want to add my energy to ( in this case the jewelry). As I move my hands over the item I envisioned it being charged with energy or the intention of my choosing.

Herbal Or Salt Method:

For this method I will opt for a bowl of salt to lay the jewelry in for cleansing. For charging I will opt to use an herb specific to the intent I wish to use for the item. I will place the jewelry into the bowl of say goldenrod for prosperity and abundance and let it charge within the herbs for a while. From time to time I will focus on the bowl, placed within sight, and think of my work, resting peacefully, as if in meditation ( I usually am).

These are my most commonly used methods. If anyone has others feel free to add them to this thread.

Another method is through etching/carving. Though it can be challenging depending on the intended medium.

The process is simple, but can take some practice and specific tools to physically carve, cut, or etch a symbol or rune into the piece of jewellery. For example placing the rune Ansuz onto the inside of a bracelet to bring thoughts towards prosperity and vitality. Simple if it is a resin band, but more of a challenge if the band were silver or steel.

Spirit, etching and carving is a great method. It makes me wonder if drawing or a different other number of artistic methods work in the same manner.

Which brings up the topic of crafting jewelry, or handmade jewelry. In this way many different techniques could be used to charge the item.

I recently made a ring from nail polygel, and decorated it with a specific plant I have been working with. The plant adds a level of intent and to get quite technical, essentially it becomes an amulet and in essence a spell.

With handmade jewelry there are a number of symbols which can be etched, drawn, or painted. Astrological symbols, sabian, planetary, even aspects if one is working with the energy of such a thing. God/Goddess symbolism, the use of color, shape etc.

Etching and carving is a great method, thank you for your thoughts.
