The newest incarnation of my planchette series is even smaller than the mini, measuring 23mm tall and 15mm wide at its widest. This sizes allows for more subtlety and is perfect for wearing with larger Blood Milk rings. The planchette has become a personal symbol for me. After weathering a strange storm of personal losses, I became ( & still am) obsessed with discovering as much as I could about the afterlife through study of various cultural and religious beliefs.These examinations led me to dip further into my early interests in Victorian Spiritualist, which is founded on a belief in 'Spirit' and our ability to communicate with the dead. These continuations of relationships after death fascinated me and the planchette became both a personal symbol of this obsession as well as a visual symbol for the imagined communication one could have employing the planchette. It has become, for me, a personal talisman for copying with grief and a symbol of the love that lingers on after death.
Apart from the spirit board its often associated with, the planchette was also used during Victorian times for automatic writing. A much larger version was rigged with wheels and a pencil and allowed for a free association writing that people employed to tap into their unconscious. In this way, the planchette is also a symbol of the divinatory experience between the conscious and the unconscious, between the body & the psyche.Each planchette ring is cast immortal in sterling silver, given a beautiful satin (matte) finish and then hand oxidized to achieve my signature shade of gloomy gray. Due to the unique nature of casting smooth surfaces, the planchettes bear subtly beautiful distressing that makes them appear antique. Unlike the other two, larger versions of this ring, there is no glass set into the window.The planchette measures 23mm tall ( 0.9 of an inch) & 15mm ( 0.59 of an inch) wide at its widest, making in nearer in size to a US penny.
