Morse code as a way to send a messages through dots and dashes is almost 200 years old. Now a new way of using that code system can carry meaningful messages, prayers and aspirations through jewelry! Here the beads spell out the words “ad majorem Dei gloriam” like this
Strung on a cotton/nylon blend thread for flexibility and durability are dark olive green cat’s eye glass “dashes” and jet black “dots”, all spaced by golden yellow seed beads. Combined together, these colors are serious and sophisticated, but the smaller size of the beads keep the necklace from being stuffy. The clasp in the back is a gold plated screw-type clasp. Total length is about 21″
“Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” or “For the greater glory of God” is the motto of the Society of Jesus as well as many of the Jesuit colleges and universities. This phrase chosen by Saint Ignatius of Loyola reminds us that all our work can be done to give glory to God.
