I'm hoping we can learn....get creative...personalize our magickal tools....and have some fun here....Throughout the many Pagan groups I'm in and have been in....I have noticed that sometimes people have a hard time aquiring certain tools....oils.....bath salts... etc...Or are looking for information on how to make charms...candles.... incenses and more....So I thought that compiling all this 'do it yourself' information in the same place would be of some help to all of us....

'The Crafty Witch' is a group intended for people that would like to learn to 'craft' some of their own magickal tools.....candles....incenses....etc....It's also a place to swap crafts...ideas....and recipes related to the group.....Some of the information here will be of my own making.....some will be of information I have gathered from around the web....Please feel free to contribute with your own information....I would like to cover as much as possible...whether it be on beading...charms....etc.....and I'd like to keep the work as simple as possible.....Please do not hesitate to make requests....Feedback and/or advice on any of the projects you may try here would be greatly appreciated....Let's keep our minds and hands busy....and have fun with the 'craft'.....

Have fun.....Sassy Jezebel

I used that kind of toggle (in black) on the choker I made.  Still fudging with it, the choker isn't laying flat.

@Ragnarok, nice!  I used to hate toggles like that but they are slowly growing on me now that I figured them out... :p Lovely stone too, what are the "marbly" ones?

Oops...wire rings as you've posted BELOW...
Comment by Amethyst Samia on August 11, 2014 at 8:06am
Good morn all! Incredibly behind as usual. I'm now adminning SEVEN groups...none of which are mine. Can any of y'all help me learn to say not no but HELL no?

Aradia my friend is trying different things. I have a little business sense and education so I'm trying to guide her in the right direction. The problem as I saw it is the simple "beading" is done by everyone...except me of course...or nearly everyone. And this area cannot support expensive things. She uses good materials and real crystals and such...but IMO it was just the same ol' same ol'. So I've got her trying different things. The artistic stuff is all hers...but I can help with the business end. is an adventure. I'm helping her improve her photography, etc. she's actually started making the wire rings as you've posted above. And of course I'm trying to get her to make a few pagan items. Haha! I bought a tigers eye goddess pendant a while back and haven't a clue how to do something with it. So she's going to do some wiring and such and post it as a custom order. Long story short...she's open to new ideas, from me. Other folks she sees as criticism so we're working on that. I'm also working on getting her to write a business I'm going to write it most likely. Hahaha! Anything to keep from going to the flea market!

The paracord...that is a fun project isn't it. He's it is macramé and weaving and knotting. I was an assistant Boy Scout master and the s out master swore he had never seen anyone he couldn't teach to tie knots. Boy Scouts are big on knots. He tried for so long to help me and was in total amazement at my "challenges". It's really sad at just how craft impaired I am. My talents lie elsewhere I s'pose.

Anyway...the paracord...sometimes she removes the white fibers from inside the cord to make it smaller and that works out fairly well. And yeah she's used the 325 cord. There's also a 425 or 450 or something in between. Neat stuff IMO. The possibilities are endless. If you search Etsy for "paracord you get about 250 pages of results. The things they make are amazing. Yammering again aren't I.

Socky of course you can mention your site here. They just don't want you posting discussions on the main boards about it as it isn't really fair to the advertisers. I believe you can also post a blog about it on your personal page. I will certainly be going and favoriting your shop. I'm sure my friend will as well. She loves makeup as well. I bought her some beads and she was frothing at the mouth to get them so I've labeled her a "bead whore". She laughed so hard and said "YES I AM!" She's the same with cosmetics.

Heather your stuff is so cute. I believe I've already favorited your shop. If I haven't already I certainly will.

And for anyone interested my friend's shop is aCamilleCreation on Etsy.

Hi Ianna! How are you! Good to see you here. And welcome to the club Megiemae. Good place to chat here and learn. Hi Zu!

Did I miss anything? I think I need a nap now.

@Ianna, something fun with wire! <3

Comment by Ianna on August 7, 2014 at 10:52am

I'm also looking forward to seeing what you make Megiemae! And Aradia Goseling, would also love to see what you do with wiring and knotting.....Blessings, Ianna:)

Amethyst, yes flea markets aren't really the place, which is why while there is one "near" me to go to it just wouldn't go over well and I know that all too well.  Also I'm not one to waste my time.  Talking to the "wrong" people in business is not good business either.

I actually was in a local craft store scoping out some wooden trays for a project I want to get around to...trying to minimize the project queue to a dull roar >,<...and saw some 325 cord, precisely the same as the original 550, just thinner.  Which I thought was neat and might come in handing for weaving.  (I love to weave extra large or extra small things, and use less than conventional or unintended materials!)

From what I understand it's all knotting (macrame) techniques and with enough imagination you can do a lot with most anything!  It's always fun to switch out fibers though!  I love to use wire as well which leads me to the design of something for a special client of mine this week! o.o
