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.
