EDIT: I have managed to make my own molds; tutorial below. This was my original inquiry but if you are looking to make pendulum molds keep reading:

Ok, guys. I love pendulums, and I love orgonite. Lately I've been seeing these everywhere:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/203689842/orgone-healing-chakra-dowsing-p endulum

or

http://www.ankurgems.com/orgonependulum.html

or

http://www.amazon.com/Pendulum-Healing-Crystal-Natural-Piezoelectric

I know some of these are probably being factory made or something (I've seen a few "orgonite pendulums" in metaphysical shops and they feel like inert plastic) but I want to know how they are making these, especially the faceted ones. I have combed the entire internet looking for a mold that would produce those long, faceted pendulums that I like (not so much the short fat ones, or tiny little cone shapes that wouldn't have much weight) similar to the ones I linked to.

I did find this thread and read through that...none of those molds seem to be producing anything like the above. There must be a mold for pendulums somewhere, right?

I ordered some silicone to try casting my own molds from the pendulums I have that are the right shape, but I'm not confident that it will turn out well. So, I have three questions:

1. Has anyone ever made orgonite pendulums? What size/shape? What mold did you use? Any information you could give about the experience?

2. Have you come across any pre-made molds for this purpose that would produce a faceted pendulum shape? Does anyone make these? How are sellers like the above making these look the way they do? Are they all just perfectly casting their own molds and not telling anyone?

3. Have you ever made your own mold out of silicone and can you share any wisdom, especially if you've made a mold for pendulums?

Thank you! Seems I'm not the only one with these questions out there, but I cannot find any molds that match all the pieces I'm seeing on etsy and ebay and amazon and such.

Magnetic Clasp.

I like the simplicity of the orgonite matrix. 24 K gold, resin and a small Lemurian crystal.

I am sorry, I do not remember where I got the little glass vials. They should be easy to find with a little research.

Did a quick search and found this:

https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/230717916/multi-clear-silicone-ring-mo lds4-ps?ref=sc_1&plkey=aef3a1918d59068b9697ad63d650b7d73806d68d%3A2307 17916&ga_search_query=silicon+mold&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gal lery

Looks like there's some nice vogel type shape in there, not exactly what you were looking for I think but might be workable.

Thank you guys for sharing! Liberta, that's exactly the shape I'm looking for. The pendants look like they will be far too small for pendulums but it gives me an idea. That silicone mold looks like it could have been handmade so I am going to try my hand at making my own mold. I will post about it after I do. My supplies are on the way!

Please do !

We have had good luck making molds but have not posted about it. Pictures appreciated.

Here we go, how to make orgonite pendulums: an unofficial tutorial.

First, I started off by collecting the positives (pendulums and small pyramid) that I wanted to make the molds of as well as mold molds. These little boxes are from the Container Store, and they will help to stabilize the mold from the outside.



Next is getting the mold making material. This is Silicone Plastique and it is a lovely material to work with. Check the link for how to use it.



Here's my kitchen scale that I happened to have on hand for measuring coffee beans. Useful to make sure you are getting an exact equal proportion and not wasting any silicone. I also have my materials ready.



Here I am weighing out 20 grams of each type. 40 grams mixed together. It fits perfectly in the box I will be using for my pendulum.



You don't want any voids so when you are pressing the putty into the box (if you are using one; you don't have to) make sure you press all the air out. The purpose of the box is to keep the putty uniform and allow it to stand on its own when you pull it out. Also, wrapping the putty around the glassy faceted surface of the pendulum (as they recommend in the mold making steps) does not work very well, so the box adds further stability to the endeavor. Press the pendulum slowly and evenly into the mold. Make sure to get it center. You don't want to have any weak walls. You'll notice, if you got a box the right size, that the putty spills out the top a little. That makes it easier to remove when it's cured.

If you don't use a box, make sure you build up enough putty around the pendulum so that it can stand when you pour resin into the negative space. When I tried coating the surface with putty and building the putty around the piece, I got voids and a sloppy finished product. When I pushed the pendulum smoothly through the putty, I got a clean lovely mold.



Here it is all finished curing (grab the pendulum by the top fastener and wiggle it out, or, if the mold has been removed from the box, you can squeeze the sides. Notice how I removed the chain first):



Now we're ready to pour! At this stage, I dumped the material (metal, crystal) into the mold to measure how much I was going to need. A tiny, tiny amount. Make sure that you are doing other pieces at the same time as these because they take so little resin it won't be worth mixing an amount just for this.

Once I had measured the right amount of dry ingredients, I poured a little resin in and coated the metal/stones with resin before adding them to the mold. I threw in a tiny quartz and then, when the resin was beginning to cure, I stuck a pin head with a loop that would be used to attach the chain later on. This is tricky and you have to be careful to get it exactly center. It will want to droop over and then the thing will be unbalanced when you try to hold it later, so make sure it is absolutely straight in the center. Keep checking and adjust as necessary until you are sure it will stay put. The metal/stones you add can help keep it in place.

Alternatively, you can skip that step and just glue a fastener to the top to attach the chain, but I liked the first approach.



And here we go! Two finished pendulums. These have flat tops and faceted sides. One is brass, aluminum, and copper; the other peridot and aluminum.



Close up.





And of course, the obligatory cat test:



Troubleshooting:

Make sure you thoroughly mix the dry ingredients in resin before you add them to the mold. This mold is tiny and does not allow for stirring or movement, meaning any tightly packed metal or stone WILL NOT be coated in resin. Measure your dry ingredients in the mold, dump them into a small cup, mix them up in a bit of resin, and then slowly add them to the mold for best results.

Be sure you don't overfill or you will have an awkward shape at the top, depending on how you made your mold. I made mine to have a flat top for ease of removal.

If you find voids in your finished product, here's what to do. Take a bottle of clear coat nail polish, remove the brush, and dip the entire tip of your pendulum in the polish. Keep doing this until the tip starts to fill out. While my first pieces came out a little rough due to the aforementioned issues, I was surprised how much this helped fix them up. Of course, you'll also be sanding and painting these with clear coat to get them to look nice.

Overall, while there was some trial and error (and tossed molds) these came out pretty well. The molds are hardy and look great after their first use. The pound of silicone can make several of these pendulum molds which is cool. If you try this, post pictures of your results!
