Celestial Athame

A true work of art. A client came to us with a concept for her magical knife. She described her philosophy and ideas, how she felt and what the knife needed to represent. She also gave us a list of elements important to her. Here is the result. The overall knife is bronze with silver plate, the handle is black onyx shot with gold. The blade is tempered steel in a leaf shape. The concept of the microcosm and the macrocosm is represented. The galaxy and planets spiraling into the ripples of a pond, the movement of the earth and of the seas. Gemstones include are, Amber, ruby,Sapphire, citrine, peridot, hematite and lapis. The plants and animals represented are the Orca, Turtle, frog, badger, bird, fish and marshmallow.
