This is one of my current favorites. Two Victorian era hand stampings have been cast immortal in spectral sterling silver to act as the guardians of your body when terminated at the ends of a beautiful bypass cuff. The hands act as the joining of the seance circle, adding your own body to this union. It literally grasps your arm/wrist.
Part of my Lily Dale series, (the largest community of spiritualist mediums, which i visited in the summer of 2010) this piece marks my interest in Victorian spiritualism, and how it has thrived in the shadows of modern society. Seances were made popular in the mid 1800's and consisted of a group of people who encircled a table, often holding hands, in the candle lit darkness to communicate with the 'other side' or the spirit world. These gatherings were popular during the Victorian era, and it's said even President Abraham Lincoln participated in them during his presidential term, in the White House.
This act of communicating with the spirit world is also a metaphor for communicating with one's self, the unconscious, or the shadowy pieces we only catch a glimpse of from time to time.
The hands of the cuff measure 1 1/2 inches long and are mostly hollow in the back for weight balance. The circumference of the cuff is 5 inches and is adjustable.
