I was thinking about how, when I was a kid, pagers were the norm to carry around instead of cell phones. As a kid I didn’t need or have a pager, but knew the pager number code and would make bracelets with my friends with them. I sported a 844 bracelet to signify my friendship with my bff through the 90s.
I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to make a chicer version of those bracelets and thought Morse code would be perfect for these bracelets.
Did you know that today is Samuel Morse’s birthday? He Joseph Henry, and Alfred Vail invented Morse code in around 1836.
