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)
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.
We are still selling fidgets and fidget sets. In some cases our sets meet Etsy's regulations. Other times we can sell on Ebay or by emailing us. We are in the process of re-thinking our business plan.
We still have our trendy "Go Bags" and holiday fidget sets, we are introducing new themed fidget kits, and our "mystery mail" or mailed sets will be available as a paid monthly subscription.
Soon more of our fidgets, and boredom-busters will be sold individually.
We will post here, Facebook, and Instagram when we have determined the path we will take.
We are using more attractive packaging. Jewelry will be in a heavy-duty cotton/canvas-like drawstring pouch professionally printed in color rather than hand-stamped.
Small gift notes for messages with envelopes remain available at no cost if requested. We will write your message or send it blank. Leave us a message if shopping on Etsy.
