I’m always excited when people ask us to make special items as gifts for people. A few weeks ago we received an email asking for us to make a custom necklace. Our client wanted a variation on our Vintage by Drakestail Jewellery line, using our gorgeous Swarovski crystals, and as soon as I read the email I was excited to get started!
Our client explained to me that any time he texts with his wife, he always ends the conversation with XOXO. He wanted to put that into a Valentine’s gift, and came up with the idea of using XOXO in Morse code, -..- — -..- —, spelled out in pearls. After discussing colour options, he picked Rosaline pink to represent the dashes, and lavender to represent the dots. He chose light gold for the rest of the necklace. As soon as he made his picks, I got to work, curious to see the end result.
The Morse code was a great idea and the necklace turned out great. I tucked in one of our signature stardust beads, which he loved as well.
Want to send a secret message to someone? We’d love to do more Morse code pieces! What would you want your jewellery to tell the world?
