Hands have always held a deep meaning in the Victorian Era. Often symbolizing the Mediums hand (psychic, and other mystics). It would also represent the hand of someone once beloved that has passed as a representation of the forever hold our loved ones have on us, even after life. Hands have gone on to have deeper meanings for different things, but their prevalence in the Victorian era is heavy. Hands and eyes are two of our favorite symbols... two of the healers, seers, and clairvoyants tools. Hand designed, adorned with small plastic pearls on front and back around wrist and ring. “Pearls bring tears.” Myth, legend, and religion, as well as ancient and modern metaphysics have spoken of the gems in glowing terms. Given pearl symbolism of wisdom, enlightenment, innocence, serenity, protection, and longevity, it's safe to say that pearls are associated with good luck.

About the maker: Seance’s founder began making perfumes long ago after becoming obsessed with the power of an aroma. Truly, the right scent can paint a picture, evoke a strong emotion, or transport someone to a certain place and moment in time.
From an early age, our founder learned she had the gift of intuition. Dedicated to harnessing this mysterious and intriguing ability, she honed her senses through extensive classes and research. Over time, she worked to help others develop these same faculties, hoping that they too would journey ever deeper into the vast expansiveness of what we have yet to explain.
Seance is built on this fascination with the paranormal and metaphysical. As human beings, we each strive to walk the fine line between what is scientifically rational and that which is emotional. Though technology advances and the world grows smaller each day, life offers each of us the same challenge: to find a place for those things that may only be felt.
And so it was in the Victorian era, a time which gives us inspiration and a sense of connection. Men and women of those bygone days were very open to the world of spirits, using mourning practices and incorporating other rituals into their daily lives. Chief among these, of course, was the seance. Through the help of a medium or by joining hands over a Ouija board, it was common for Victorians to experience a presence and emerge with a story of their own.
