Girls are supporting Girls!

Girls are supporting Girls!

We just dropped our newest collection and this one is pretty special. We want you to remind yourself that you’re perfect the way you are  and how "girls supporting girls" can make a big impact in the world.  

We all fight our own battles and face our own struggles in life. While we often mistake that we are alone in these internal tribulations, we soon come to realize that more people can relate to us than we thought. From facing our fears, to building confidence in ourselves, to dealing with depression, we all have something that we need a little encouragement on.

This collection is all about empowerment and encouragement. We want to help you face these struggles and hurdles taken place throughout your lives. That is why we named it “I am, You are” collection. The collection contains powerful words that are not only inspirational, but also serve as powerful reminders of the strengths that lie within each and every one of us.

We understand the importance of encouragement. Offering these special words in Morse Code language makes them even more meaningful. It may look secret, but it screams a lot. These phrases encourage us to relish in our own uniqueness and to tab in our inner positivity and bravery. If you are going through a hard time or making a huge life transition, this will be a reminder that "You got it, girl!" 

Here is an in depth breakdown of the four ways you can choose your reminder to stay strong through the good, as well as the bad times:

BE POSITIVE

The most important thing to have at all times. It’s ok to feel down or defeated, as no one is always 100% perfect. However, we have to constantly remind ourselves to maintain a positive attitude in life, because it is something that we have complete control over. Staying positive will help us overcome difficult challenges and succeed in whatever endeavor we take on. (Happy, Grace, Cool, Awesome, Winner)

THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF-LOVE

Not comparing ourselves to others and loving who we are. In this time, social media can distort how other people live their lives by portraying a life that is perfect and unmatchable. On pictures, everything will always look great. However, images don't tell the whole story behind the smiles. Many young people are dealing with depression as they feel like their life is not good enough as compared to others. In reality, they are comparing their life to snapshots of something that was skillfully staged by others and isn't necessarily true. As it was well said, “Be you. Everyone else is taken.”  (Loved, Blessed, Dreamer)

    BE PROUD OF YOURSELF

    All of us are different and unique creatures. As a result, we should embrace the differences among one another. Trying to become or look like someone else will only bring frustrations. Living in our own skin and accepting our differences are the keys to happiness. Appreciate who you are and what you have (the skills, the looks, the personalities, etc.) as you will have better success turning those into strengths that will fuel your ambition and passions. (Unique, Beautiful, Special, Enough)

      YOU ARE STRONG AND FEARLESS

      Struggles and setbacks are inevitable in life. Everyone will fight his/her own battle at any point in time. Whether it is a battle against cancer, depression, sickness, or simply achieving your dream & success. Don't be afraid, as those struggles are good to face. They will make you grow and become a better version of yourself. At the end of the day, it's not so much about the struggles that we should worry about, but the initiatives that we take to overcome them. (Strong, Brave, Fighter, Fearless)

      Last but not least, let's share these positive vibes with others. You are not only making a difference in your life, but also in the lives of others. Be open to new ideas, and accept people around you for who they are. Encourage them to thrive with the gifts they have. Those might seem like very small efforts, however, this chain of positive behavior will be replicated, not just by you, but also by those around you as well.

      We can all identify with a phrase or two in this collection, or know someone who could use the extra encouragement in life right now. We truly hope that you will find what you are looking for in this collection, because it is an embodiment of the fighters we all are inside. 

      When girls support each other, incredible things happen. Wear your confidence all day long without being too obvious. Say it in secret - Morse code style!

      Back to School with Morse Code

      Back to School with Morse Code

      The time has come to pack up all your stuff (basically your life), and head to your home away from home. That’s right, it’s back to school time for many college students around the world.

      College is that unique time in your life where you go to find yourself and your desired career path. This is also the time where you make lifelong bonds and connections that will last you a lifetime. CA Souls wants to help you memorialize that time in your life by offering some great back-to-school ideas. These inspirational ideas are not just for those who are currently in school, but also for those proud alumni who hold their alma mater close to their heart to this day.

      Here are some great ways to show school spirit in a meaningful and unique way on your campus this fall.

      Sorority (big-little set)

      What could be more special than sharing a special connection between your sorority sisters, than symbolizing it in a way that’s truly one-of-a-kind? As a member of Greek life, you know the importance pledging to a lifelong bond that goes well beyond your college years. Customize your own special piece for your little or big (or both) with a meaningful phrase or message that they will love. This is the perfect way to memorialize the bonds of sisterhood that has transcended time for generations, and will continue to live on through you.

      Examples words you can use:

      • Bond
      • Your greek letters
      • Your mascot / symbol (Ladybug, kite, fleur-de-lis)

      School name in Morse Code - Customize your own

      Some colleges go by acronyms, others by their mascots and some simply go by their name if it’s easy enough to pronounce. Promote your school spirit by customizing your school’s identity with our Morse Code collection. Many people already own t-shirts, hoodies, flags or bumper stickers emphasizing their college loyalty. Why not wear it in a way that’s never been done before? Here at CA Souls we look forward to helping you craft the perfect piece to show your school pride in a subtle and unique style on campus this year.

       Examples:

      • Pitt
      • PSU
      • WVU
      • Gators
      • Bucknell

       Nylon bracelets with your school color

      Add some splash to your jewelry piece by accenting it with your school colors. CA Souls offers colored nylon bracelets that can really add some flare to your school centered piece. This year, don’t just show your school spirit in your apparel. Wear something that won’t get ragged or age over time after a few washes. Our jewelry line is not only meaningful, but also timeless in keeping your school spirit alive well after you leave your college campus.

      Friendship collection

      Need a little inspiration? Looking for that perfect gift for your best friend or college roommate’s birthday? Our friendship collection offers some great ideas and insight into the perfect message or phrase for your best friends. You can also customize your own message that is special to your closes knit group of friends. There is nothing more meaningful than giving something that can be cherished and worn for many years. As your friendship can last well past your college graduation, so can the gift of giving a CA Souls jewelry piece.

      Also, you don't have to be blood to be sisters. Our personalized sister collection has some wonderful and unique phrases that are perfect for your self-created family. See which message is the best fit for you, and those individuals who are your source of strength and happiness while away from home.

      We hope that we helped inspire some school spirit and pride in preparation of life’s next chapter. We look forward to hearing from you, and hope that we can help customize your story or chapter in way that’s never been done before.

      10 Reasons to Buy a Morse Code Jewelry!

      10 Reasons to Buy a Morse Code Jewelry!

      Finding jewelry that is meaningful and unique is daunting and not an easy accomplishment. Stores are lined with a variety of options, and it really takes something different to stand out from the rest. At our jewelry company, CA Souls, we use Morse code as our design focal point, and give our customers the chance to create an intimate and powerful message that only few can decipher. As a result of this customization, we create something that has sentimental value and a poignant meaning to those who purchase our jewelry.

      For a deeper understanding of our Morse Code jewelry line, we shared the Top 10 reasons why you should check out our pieces. Hopefully, you will get some better insight into our brand, creative thoughts, and possibly make our jewelry your next purchase for that someone special.

    1. 1. Our customization is incomparable
    2. There is nothing more powerful than creating your own message in a way that only few can understand. Our Morse Code collection gives you the ability to create a beautiful piece that is solely special to you and to those you love. From a bridal collection for your bridesmaids, to customizing a piece for that special someone you consider “your person”, our handcrafted pieces are one-of-a-kind in a way that is unlike anything else out there.

    3. 2. Simple, yet meaningful jewelry line
    4. We’d like to think our pieces are beautiful, yet simple and deeply meaningful. We purposefully created a minimal jewelry line that our customers can fit perfectly with their everyday outfit or professional attire. The beads used to represent the Morse Code message are small, yet eye-catching and bold. Coupled with the slender chain of the necklace or bracelet, our jewelry can stand out amongst the crowd, without having to be over-the-top with gems, jewels and shimmery accents.

      These jewelry pieces also play a bigger role; they can be a reminder of a happy memory, a dear relationship, a daily encouragement or even a symbol of a new beginning. What our brand offers is a subtle jewelry addition to your daily style, while making a powerful statement to match a beautiful story or message.

    5. 3. A simple message can tell a whole story
    6. You may have heard of the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words. The same holds true for your unique message as well. You have up to eight characters to summarize your special message to someone. While that may seem small, all it takes is one small word or phrase to transcend a whole meaning.

      For instance, August 6th is National Sister’s Day. Try thinking about your own sister in one word, and see what word inspires you (Examples - love, sister, forever, BFF or my person). All it takes is the right word to embody the full meaning and story to your relationship. As sisters (blood or not), you have a bond that not many will have in their lifetime, and is unique all on its own. All it takes is that one special word to bring to light a relationship that means so much to those who share in it.

    7. 4. Each piece is handmade with love and care
    8. We take pride in each piece that we create because it is an honor for us to be a part of the hundreds or even thousands of unique stories out there.We understand that each message and design has a sentimental meaning to our customers. For some it can symbolize a life long friendship or a love story. Whereas for others, it can be a reunion or even a struggle in battling cancer.As a result of this, the crafting process goes beyond simply creating "a beautiful piece of jewelry." We immerse ourselves in the customers' stories and take the time to hand-craft each piece in a personalized way.

      We also encourage our customers to leave personalized notes as part of our ordering process. We take the time to hand write each note, so that they can be delivered alongside the jewelry to the intended recipient. This really tops off the jewelry order and makes it even more special to those both receive and give the gift of a CA Souls jewelry piece.

    9. 5. A variety of pieces that come in many different forms
    10. Some people love necklaces, others enjoy chokers and some just simply want to wear a bracelet. Here, we got all jewelry lovers covered. Our pieces come in a traditional necklace style, lariat necklace, choker style, and Y-necklaces. Our bracelets are also perfect for those shoppers who love to layer their bracelets/necklaces and want to add another beautifully subtle piece to their arm candy collection. With so many options available, it is hard to not find something to appease the jewelry lover that lies in many of us.

    11. 6. You can always throw some color in
    12. We know that you love to personalize your piece when it comes to designing one for yourself or your loved one. Aside from choosing the type of jewelry you want and customizing a message, you can also add some accent color to your piece. The color comes in the form of Swarovski birthstones and crystals that are offered in our Chloe, Ann, and Laura bracelet/necklace designs.

      Best of all, you have the option to personalize the color to your birth month. The birthstones will give your piece that extra splash of color that you desire, but is still simple and subtle. Our website offers pictures of the different colors, both birthstones and jewelry pieces, to help give you a better visualization of your final piece as well.

      Regardless of the colors you choose, the message will still be present and make a powerful statement without having to be over-the-top in presentation.

    13. 7. Gifts for him - you got it, gifts for your special guy are available
    14. We show no bias at CA Souls, because we know that not all jewelry lovers are women. We also offer a jewelry line that is ‘unisex’, and can appease both men and women jewelry wearers out there. Bracelets named Pax, Jayden, Drew, Alex, and Riley are just some of the unisex options out there for your special guy. Be sure to check those options out as well, and possibly surprise your other half with a one-of-kind piece that will be deeply meaningful to both of you.

    15. 8. You appreciate and desire to learn more about the Morse Code system
    16. Our pieces have really inspired us to learn more about the Morse Code system. There is so much more to it than just a series of dashes and dots, but a whole communication system that was instrumental throughout our history. Morse Code also paved the way of telecommunications as we know it today.  Reading about its history truly makes one appreciate our own devices, and to not take for granted how far we have come.

    17. 9. Modification and repairs are available
    18. Things happen and sometimes our pieces need a little adjustment or a simple fix to make it perfect. Due to those factors, we offer an extremely fair and generous modification and repair policy for our jewelry line. We want you to be happy with the final product, and will do what we can to insure you get the best end result.

    19. 10. Need an idea or inspiration? Check out our social media pages
    20. We love to show off some of the most favorite pieces, but we understand that we can’t fit them all on our website. If you follow our social media platforms, we not only highlight our new pieces, but also give out some gift ideas or share special jewelry items that were recently crafted by the minds of our customers. We are always striving to evolve our line and take it to the next level for our current and prospective customers out there.
