Welcome to Austin's WearABLEs
"We'll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy
There's no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be"
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Austin's WearABLEs sells quality handcrafted beaded jewelry designed and created by Austin Wear. Austin is a young adult with autism. Making beaded jewelry is immensely beneficial to him, those who wear it, and the organizations that receive a portion of all jewelry sales.
"Austin's Fidgets-n-Fun" has an impressive assortment of fidgets and "boredom buster" activities. We are best known for our FIDGET GO BAGS. Also very popular are our themed fidget mailed packets and our monthly "mystery mail" deliveries. Profits from Fidgets-n-Fun help fund jewelry supplies and operational expenses.
Beaded jewelry created by Austin Wear. In 2016 by chance, Austin made a beaded bracelet. Immediately he was drawn to this activity that uses creativity, making patterns, and counting.
Making beaded bracelets morphed into a behavior management strategy to help with the challenges of autism and diagnosed OCD. Austin's obsession and subsequent compulsive behavior are primarily counting, coding, and making patterns. His jewelry is a productive outlet for those needs. He enjoys creating and is encouraged by the praise he receives and requests for what he makes. It is a fun activity. Beading has not only helped him manage anxiety, which triggers severe behaviors, but it has given him purpose and dignity.
In 2019 Austin's mother founded Austin's WearABLE Art and began selling his products online and directly to customers. Starting with the first sale, 10% of jewelry sales have been donated to non-profit organizations with a mission to enrich the lives of people with disabilities. A list of organizations is on our GIVING BACK page.
In 2021 FIDGETS were added to the catalog. Fidgets have become a favorite for children and adults over the last five years. But, they have been a staple in our home for over 20 years. They were suggested beginning at age 4 by resource specialists and followed by occupational therapists and behavior specialists. Austin uses several specific types, as do many individuals with autism, anxiety, and ADHD: to relieve stress and improve focus. Bonus: They are fun. Along with fidgets we sell a limited number of "boredom buster" activities and a few products to help gain independent living skills.
We sell our fidgets and "boredom buster" activities in a variety of kits that have been given careful thought. We research the latest trends and keep an inventory of classics. "Austin's Fidgets" includes our premier package "GO BAG", Monthly Mystery/Blind Mailings, Holiday Sets, Office/Meeting Room package, and novel themes.
Any profits from AUSTIN'S FIDGETS help fund supplies for the inventory of jewelry designs and operational expenses
