cast in sterling silver it features a glass "window" set like a gem into the piece and is hand oxidized to achieve a rich shade of gloomy gray with slight distressing, giving it a haunted, antique feel. the piece comes complete with tiny ball risers on the back, so that when the necklace is not worn on the body, it becomes fully 'functional' on a smooth surface, or ouija board.
the planchette is 2 inches long and nearly 2 inches wide at it's widest and is accompanied with18 inches of perfectly matched bar link chain, mimicking bones or rosary beads, 9 inches on each side.
the planchette has become a deeply personal symbol for me, as i began to become interested in the afterlife and notions of 'speaking with the dead' after I experienced a time of personal loss and grief. when i originally created this piece, i was thinking of how the planchette as a symbol explores the strange notion of speaking with the dead, and in a way also, speaking with the unseen and unexplored parts of yourself.
a planchette is the "guide" or "tool" of a ouija board/ spirit board, but was also used separately as a tool of automatic writing by victorians, spiritualists and surrealists, it is thought to be associated with speaking with your inner subconscious just as much as with speaking with the dead.
