  • the story

Connect the Dots.

Artist Rachel Shoshana took cues from her past to provide the inspiration for her meaningful series of coded pendants. After receiving a necklace from her sister with a written message on it, Rachel found it difficult to convey the weight and significance of such a personal phrase to those who inquired about its meaning. By looking to her mother's profession as a special education teacher, she found her solution. Rachel learned sign language at an early age and remembered the secret signals only two people share. Along a sterling silver bar Rachel places ever so slightly recessed dots spelling out a single word. At the bottom, a corresponding semi-precious stone adds even more meaning with its metaphysical properties. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

From left to right:
Create -Orange - Contains carnelian to help sharpen mental focus and to boost courage.
Dream -Iridescent Blue Grey- Contains labradorite to help you find spiritual destiny and help reveal your path to happiness.
Hope -Purple- Contains amethyst, to generate inner peace and to achieve positive transformation within.
Love -Translucent -Contains rose quartz, the unconditional love stone, that teaches the wearer to open their heart and to love fully.
Peace -Light Blue - Contains turquoise, which helps absorb negativity and generate inner peace.

These stones are believed by many to have metaphysical properties which may inspire and empower the wearer.

NOT appropriate

By 

from Boston, MA

Comments about HIDDEN MESSAGE PENDANTS:

I was upset when I saw this product. I am a teacher of the blind, and this necklace is in no way a representation of braille. The way the artist lines up the braille characters is incorrect, and it does not represent any "secret" code. I would not support this product or artist by buying it. I would recommend to the artist if they are interested in braille, then they should learn about the braille code and produce it correctly so sighted and non sighted individuals can read it.

        I was sooo excited by this idea and then when I received my product it looks like something that came out of a gumball machine! I ended up not giving it to its intended resipient because I was embarassed by the quality. If this is the kind fo quality you sell for at this price point I will not be buying from this website again!!!

          Comments about HIDDEN MESSAGE PENDANTS:

          Also, as someone who works with the blind and teaches Braille, I am pretty offended by this necklace. Be sure, I do not expect the dots to be read tactily—I personally read Braille with my eyes. This being said, Braille isn't a language that can be greatly modified for artistic interpretation. When you move the location of a dot, the letter changes. Therefore, these necklaces are not in Braille. They are strips of metal with random dots on them. There are Braille jewelry options available, that are both secret codes and readable. But, if you are in the market for a charm decorated in dots, this just may be your item—just please don't give this to a person who is a Braille reader. They won't get it.

            As someone who works with blind people and teaches Braille for a living, I find that the Braille on these pendants is done so poorly that I can't even make out the words. They made more of a hidden message than they intended to on this one!

              I bought this as a gift for my daughter. She moved half way across the country and I wanted something that would be a reminder of the importance of family and my wish for her happiness and peace. It was a perfect gift!
