Celebrate National Braille Month!

Have you ever thought of creating a piece of jewelry with Braille on it?  This is a great way to add a secret message to a custom pendant, ring, bracelet, tie clip or money clip.   A raised heart element is centered on this break away guitar pick pendant and each side depicts the wearers sweethearts letter in braille.  A great his & hers Valentine gift!

It is a lot of fun creating a custom design using braille.  Here are a few examples of ideas that I created using our Online Jewelry Designer.  The micro gold charm depicts the letter E.  The vertical gold rimmed rectangle pendant has the word family and the horizontal gold flat bar displays the word loved.  Feel free to click on this screen capture which will bring you to our online jewelry design screen to play around with different design ideas.  If you haven't used it before, I think that you will enjoy seeing your design before it is made :)

 

January is the month to celebrate braille because it is the birth month of Louis Braille, the inventor of the system of raised dots that made it possible for people who are blind to read and write for themselves with independence and freedom.

 

Although modern technology has brought on a decline in the number Braille users, there are still over 150 million people that continue to use Braille around the world today.  Join us in raising the awareness and use of braille!
