Witches’ Tools: Metals Correspondence

Metals are especially useful to witches when it comes to building amulets and talismans. Simple chains of certain metals aid in the purpose of the items with their natural magickal properties, increasing the potency of the item when combined with other items of power. Metals also increase the focus of intent in spell work and rituals by way of their properties. Using a base metal or combinations of metals can target you magickal power when crafting special tools such as wands and runes. If you have a personal sigil and access to thin metal leaves or plate metal, which is soft enough to carve or stamp and will then hold the shape, your creation can have long-term use that increases the power of the item with every use.

*Remember: Always use gloves and a mask when working with lead. Due to its highly toxic nature, you should not touch it with bare skin, breathe it (dust) in, or consume anything that exposed to the lead. Lead is especially toxic to children because it interferes with proper development of the nervous system. It is known to cause damage to the nervous system, reproductive system, bones, heart, and other organs. Once a talisman or amulet has been created using lead, it should not be worn in direct contact with your skin. Clean any items which come in contact with the lead very carefully and very thoroughly.

There are so many uses for metal in spell work, amulets, talismans, magickal tools, rituals, etc. that you really should invest in some raw metals. Likewise, if you know someone who does metalwork professionally, it may be worth it to set up a barter system with him or her. You can supply them with witchcraft items they cannot create for themselves while they work their magick with the metals you need. The natural magicks in metal can be a witch’s best friend, when used properly.
