Every necklace holds a secret sentiment spelled out in Morse code. Samuel Morse, an American Artist and inventor is credited with inventing the single wire telegraph which revolutionized long distance communications.

Alicia Niles's necklaces feature dots of die cut leather and dashes of handcrafted glass beads in vibrant colors on an adjustable leather cord to spell out a secret message. What’s your secret sentiment?
