The spirit board, more commonly known as the ouija board, derived from America's obsession with spiritualism in the 19th century. Already popular for years in Europe, communicating with the dead brought solace in an era where the average lifespan was less than 50. At the time, after-death communication was considered commonplace and not seen as unconventional. With the "talking board" gaining popularity, a Novelty Company was formed to produce the board to be sold to the masses. The spirit board was so normalized that would-be crime solvers used their boards for clues to solve famous murder cases, writers gained literary inspiration through the eye of the planchette and even Norman Rockwell illustrated a cover of the Saturday Evening Post with one.
In 1973, the spirit board's normality changed almost overnight when the movie The Exorcist depicted a little girl playing with her board and becoming demonically possessed. And just like that the board was seen as a tool of the devil, a way to open the gates of hell.
The board is still considered mystical, family entertainment and all around other-wordly. Even today, some psychologists believe the ouija board may offer a link between the known and unknown. Who knows? Isn't that the fun of it? Show your belief in the supernatural in this Spirit Board Necklace.

This is my second purchase with little rooms and the necklaces are the best in the gawd damn world.
I've been wanting a creepy, beautiful, mysterious inspired necklace, and the Spirit Board Necklace materialized. I immediately added it to my cart as soon as I saw it. I ordered the gold plated version and it is perfect. I feel like the squared shape pendant gives it a more gentle, everyday appeal than if the silhouette were in the planchette shape. This gave me the freedom to wear it to work, and not feel too creepy. The compliments poured in from a wide variety of customers throughout the day. It truly is special, and a mind reader couldn't have pinned down my jewelry needs more than Little Rooms did when they created this necklace. Design more jewelry, Little Rooms, and I'll buy it.
I had been looking for the perfect spirit board necklace for sometime and low and behold, Little Rooms came through for me as always. It's the perfect blend of classy, spooky and a little cute. Perfection!
