I have been creating and shaping objects of metal for nearly 20 years now. However, I am now looking into more Occult based works. Every piece would be hand built by me, and every work has all of my energy, blood, sweat and tears behind it. I feel that in art and in the Occult this application of Will and intent imbues the item with something special from a physical level all of the way to a spiritual level. The works that I create would last through generations, if taken care of. Who wouldn't want a one-off custom piece or set that could be passed down from Master to initiate, from father to son, mother to daughter, or grandparent to grandchild?

My question to each of you is what would you as practitioners of your craft want in a custom piece of functional or ornate art made from various metal types? I work mostly with mild steel, stainless, aluminum, chromoly steel , and semi-precious metals. I am beginning to work more with precious metals as of late, but the overhead for those (especially now with the economy) would be unreasonable for production.

If I find an idea that speaks to me, you guys here will be the first to view the prototype for review. So brain storm away and give me some ideas...I obviously need to know what the Occult consumer is seeking. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Thanks for your time. Take care.

I realize this is an old post, but in case it is useful to others with the same question, here are the items I would suggest refining one's skill in crafting, in order of likely demand:

--Rings (Silver, engraved, for Goetia)
--Pendants
--Swords/Knives

These items keep coming up in "How do I get X item in order to do the working by the book?" type threads all over the Net's occult forums. Many people don't know a blacksmith who can make these things to custom specifications for them. Best of luck in your work.
