the planchette has become a personal symbol for me and my unending quest to figure out if there is an afterlife and if so, if it allows those who have passed to continue relationships with the living, with the planchette acting as a conduit between worlds. here, the necklace is worn over the heart, furthering my personal narrative of connecting with those we have loved most.
apart from the spirit board its often associated with, the planchette was also used during victorian times for automatic writing. a much large version was rigged with wheels and a pencil and allowed for a free movement and writing that people used to tap into their unconscious. in this way, the planchette is also a symbol of divinatory experience between the conscious and the unconscious, between the body & the psyche, reflecting my interests in inner alchemy.
cast immortal in sterling silver with a distressed satin finish and hand oxidized to achieve my signature shade of gloomy gray, this necklace is an intriguing option for those looking for a smaller version of the original.
paired with my favorite bar link chain, mimicking the shapes of tiny bones or the patterns of rosary beads & oxidized to match the planchette
planchette measures 1 & 6/8" tall.
chain is 18 inches long from end to end.
