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 “Totus Tuus” like this
Strung on a cotton/nylon blend thread for flexibility and durability are purple cat’s eye glass “dashes” and shiny, pale aqua “dots” all spaced by silver colored seed beads. These soft colors are pretty and feminine yet not at all too girly or childish. The clasp in the back is a silver plated lobster claw clasp. Total length is about 21″
Totus Tuus was Saint John Paul II’s apostolic motto. Taken from the writings of Saint Louis de Montfort which the Pontiff read frequently as a young seminarian, “totally thine” is an expression of piety and devotion to Mary and the Trinity.
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.
