Lindsay Rogers, the Mother of Casual Seance, founded the brand in 2013 out of her living room in Brooklyn. Already an artist with three trades under her belt, handcrafting jewelry was a natural progression into a new realm of creative outpour for Lindsay. Her prior experience molding and carving ceramics, and curating art and furniture, all played a role in her craft of creating one of a kind fine jewelry. The Toronto-native and 10-year Brooklyn-expat felt that the jewelry industry was oversaturated with cookie-cutter engagement and wedding rings; so she created the alternative; out of the ordinary, beautifully divergent and almost otherworldly jewels, finding a language that speaks to the uniqueness that we each hold as individuals.
Lindsay’s experience manipulating clay as a ceramicist undoubtedly led to her desire to form jewelry in the way that she does; first meticulously carved in wax, then cast in solid precious metals, she creates inspired, geometric pieces and one of a kind engagement rings enriched with a distinct whimsical air. The curation of ethically sourced precious stones plays an essential role in the creation of each Casual Seance piece. Using uncommon stones; diamonds with opalescent hues, sapphires varying in intensity and shade, Lindsay feels the energy of these gems (once a fragment of the Earth), transcends to skin beautifully. A sacred and requisite signature of all Casual Seance pieces.
