Traditionally, planchettes (French for “little plank”), have been used to commune with spirits from the other side. Originally, the hole in the planchette was made for a pencil, as it was believed that spirits could use the device to facilitate communication through automatic writing. The original planchettes were mainly used in séances during the Victorian era, although nowadays the planchette itself is used primarily as a pointing device, together with the traditional ouija board. I’m yet to find a similar necklace to the awesome one in this styling concept, but if you’re curious about ouija and the history of planchettes, more on that subject can be found here
