To enchant an item is to infuse it with magickal energy. This energy can come from a variety of sources, including planets, crystals, herbs, or even yourself.
Some individuals use the words “enchant” and “charm” synonymously as a way to describe the process of infusing something with energy, but for the sake of this post and due to my own beliefs, you enchant something and it then becomes a charm. Alternately, a charm can be something with its own innate energy, like a crystal or herbal amulet.
The process of enchanting is extremely versatile and there are many ways to do it successfully, so long as you keep your intent clear in your mind. My personal preference when it comes to enchanting items is to allow 12-24 hours (overnight or a full day) for the item to be infused with energy and become a charm - although, this is completely left up to the individual spell-caster.
Here are a few ideas on how to enchant items, in no particular order:
Surround the item with crystals of corresponding intent
Surround the item with herbs of corresponding intent
Place the item in a jar filled with herbs that represent your intent
Place the item in front of a candle and meditate on your intent
Anoint the item with an oil, charged water, or crystal elixir of corresponding intent
Hold the item in your hand(s) and visualize it filling with the appropriate energy
Hold the item in your hand(s) and speak your intent aloud
Craft a sigil or symbol to keep near the item in an envelope or sachet
Hellooo, guess what came in today!! All my charms have arrived today, so I’ll start mailing preorders out this weekend. I have a lot of preorders to go through, so I may not get to all of them this weekend– I’ll do my best though to get them out asap! Thanks everyone so much for your patience.
I’ve also finally finished the overwatch crossing pals as stickers ohoh, which was my ultimate goal! I’ll be selling them as a full, kiss-cut sheet with all the heroes (and a few pachimaris) on them.
Regular charm orders will be up sometime next week after all preorders are sent out, and sticker sheets will go on sale tomorrow! I’ll post another update when I do~
New charms and stands are now available for pre-ordering!! Ends July 25th!! Shipping estimated at the end of August.
Unfortunately I couldn’t finish other things I was planning due to freelance works and travelling. May be next time! And please note! The WKTR books are only book I and II, I don’t think book III will be availble until later this year, or perhaps next summer, depending on my schedule. I decided to put these two back up since there have been some folks who wanted to get them again. It is not book III!
SORRY TO ADD MORE CHARMS TO THE MARKET BUT I MADE VOLTRON CHARMS!! Pre-orders are up from now until July 20th! I have two conventions in the first week of August so the charms won’t be shipped out until after.
I have been super inactive/passive with this blog. Mostly because I have been working over 12 hours five days a week and then I work through my weekends. So to make it up to you all, here is my work space.
This is my working space. Not all my tools are on it at the moment (my knives are in my bag because I forgot to take them out and my serpent necklace is in there too been kinda hectic).
But I thought I might identify what’s in my witchy desk for you:
(From left to right on the top) macramé cord and a little bottle I decorated, some walnut stain and the antique anatomy tarot, mugwort and mandrake root, bottles, some whole cloves with a time that holds some dried roses, hand made fuel gel for my cauldron, some grape seed oil in front of a jar of thyme.
Underneath I have some of my books: The Devil’s Dozen, Traditional Witchcraft: a Cornish Book of Ways, Traditional Witches Formulary and Potion-Making Guide, and Magic and Medicine of Plants.
A couple boxes of matches, a fiber optic crystal ball, various inks including a dragons blood ink, my house doll, cauldron, one of my notebooks I have made, The Crones Book of Magical Words and Crones Book of Charms and Spells. The drawers are filled with various charms, trinkets, herbs and some beeswax.
On the desk is my test tube stand where I keep some positions to sit, my incense burner, my mortar and pestle, some prayer candles, a metal cup, a bag full of deer teeth, my centennial Rider-Waite deck, a skull I got on sale (it was work $70, and I got it for $15), and the deck that is on display is a limited print of the Tarocco “Soprafino” that was made in Italy, and a crow skull.
(And yes, my internet router is on top, it was the best place for it, right next to the skulls brother who I bought at the same time, with a box and two elephant charms for good fortune)
A lot of the stuff on my desk was gifted to me and I am so thankful.
Here’s what I’ve been working on!!! finally getting around to working on some original stuff!! I am working to make 3 variants!! Clear, glow and glitter!! They’ll be up for grabs in my etsy in a week or two!
Hey guys! Anyone still playing Pokken? Even if you aren’t, here’s some Pokemon-related charms available to order!!

Shadow Mewtwo is Limited Edition, so grab one while you can~
