ABOUT MORSE & MANTRA
Hi friends! I’m Victoria, and I created Morse & Mantra out of a desire to create beautiful and meaningful gifts! Through Morse & Mantra, I am able to craft lovely, graceful pieces of wearable art -by hand- for my friends and family... and for yours, too! I was once given a Morse Code gift with my children’s names in code, by a dear friend of mine, and was inspired to share the joy I felt from receiving such a personalized present. That joy, along with an admiration of all members of the the United States military and the military history of Morse Code were the catalysts behind Morse & Mantra!
I make each Morse & Mantra piece by hand, using some custom combination of 100% silk cord or genuine sterling silver chain, sterling silver beads, Swarovski crystals, black onyx stone, snowflake obsidian, and more.
Choose from a selection of “crafted inspirations” from the Inspiration Book, or let me style a bespoke circlet just for you! Whether it’s your loved-ones’ names, a favorite prayer, team pride, or a symbolic quote or date, I am happy to customize a piece of jewelry for you!
And don’t forget that Morse & Mantra Coded Circlets make splendid personalized gifts, stocking & basket stuffers, or inspirational remembrances. Wear them alone, or stack them for a stylish yet classic look. I look forward to creating a Coded Circlet just for you!
WHAT IS MORSE CODE?
Proud Woman-Owned Small Business
Morse Code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on - off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. It is named for Samuel F.B. Morse, an inventor of the telegraph. Each Morse Code symbol represents either a text character (letter or numeral) or a prosign and is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes.
SOS, the standard emergency signal, is a Morse Code prosign. In an emergency, Morse Code can be sent by improvised methods that can be easily "keyed" on and off, making it one of the simplest and most versatile methods of telecommunication. The most common distress signal is SOS - three dots, three dashes, and three dots - internationally recognized by treaty.
Beginning in the 1930s, both civilian and military pilots were required to be able to use Morse Code, both for use with early communications systems and for identification of navigational beacons, which transmitted continuous two- or three-letter identifiers in Morse Code. Aeronautical charts show the identifier of each navigational aid next to its location on the map.
Radiotelegraphy using Morse Code was vital during World War II, especially in carrying messages between the warships and the naval bases of the belligerents.
