"Hearts always together, love always shared. Lives always made richer by others being there. Love of one another friends, family, lovers, the world it is all. To be connected with a higher soul, in that special place to see spirit in every situation, in every face."
~M. Watkins c.2011
This is a lovely, heartful Athame, in richer cedar red/golden amber tones than shown in pix. The wavy blade end is covered in smokey pyrography coloration, as are the hearts on the grip end. The edges of the entire athame, as well as the detailing are covered in very dark pyrography. The unique colorations are achieved through layering on burns and repeated removals of part of the burns until the desired effect is achieved. Waxing with Soy Wax really brings out the beauty of the Athame at the end of the creating, and lets you see how it worked out. This Athame has a bit of the artifact look/feel to it, as if it has been around for a very long time.
Total Length: approx. 81/4 inches long
Widest measurement: approx. 1 1/4 inch.
At Thickest Part: just over 1/4 inch.
Before Athames are sent out, they receive a cleansing in smoke to remove any of the maker's energies, so that the Athame can over time attune to it's new partner. All wares are made in the spirit of love and wanting to bring objects of art to others.
All Athames arrive with in a cloth pouch for safe keeping. (fabric varies.)
An Athame is a knife the practioners use, (Witches, Wiccans, etc.)to cut the energies around them at various times, or to draw a Circle of protection, for worship or workings. Athames are not as a rule meant for physical work, i.e. cutting herbs, cords, stirring liquids.
All Athames and wands are waxed with a soy wax for protection and slight sheen.
Cost: $35.00 plus ship and handling.
