This handcrafted pendant features a gorgeous sterling silver Planchette, that has been fabricated entirely by hand. The piece has been made with two layers of sterling silver sheet metal, has been hand stamped, oxidised in parts for contrast, sanded and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable organic cotton cord, so that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace and everything in between! Like all my work, this pendant is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 PLANCHETTE LORE:
A planchette, from the French for "little plank", is a small, usually heart-shaped flat piece of wood equipped with two wheeled castors and a pencil-holding aperture, used to facilitate automatic writing. The use of planchettes to produce mysterious written messages gave rise to the belief that the devices foster communication with spirits as a form of mediumship. The devices were popular in séances during the Victorian era, before their eventual evolution into the simpler, non-writing pointing devices for Ouija boards that eclipsed the popularity of their original form.
