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.
I have enjoyed the arts my whole life – always sketching, writing, or making something. But it was 11 years ago, when I made my first rosary bracelet, that things really started to take off. Since then I have expanded into all kinds of jewelry and even further into other crafts. I live with my husband and six children in a “cozy” old house in the country. Life in rural NH with 6 kids is certainly an advetnure! When you are an active, creative family there is never a dull (rarely even a quiet) moment! I use this shop as motivation to keep doing creative things myself whenever possible and to force some order on the chaos :) Following this path not only allows me to nurture my own artistic talents, but also gives me the freedom to support my kids as they develop and nurture theirs.

I ordered 4 custom rosary chaplets as gifts for the 4 Dominican friars that I work with. I loved them, but what really mattered was what the friars thought of them--they loved them, too! They were very impressed by the workmanship and touched by how truly customized they were for each of them.

I commissioned the shop to make a custom rosary for me and I couldn't be more pleased with the final product. It's beautiful and so unique--not to mention heavy and durable! I was not expecting it to be as large as it is and to have so much heft, but that just makes it feel like the weapon that it is. I had it blessed soon after I received it and the priest who blessed it remarked at how heavy-duty and well-made it was! I can't wait to help save some souls and fight off evil with it.

I bought this as a gift for my father, a Catholic Army veteran. He loves it. It looks just like the one his grandfather had and he was so surprised when I gave it to him. The quality could not be better. I normally worry about a rosary eventually falling apart, but the way this one is made I think it will last forever. It is a really nice weight and a gorgeous piece. Thank you so much!
