We sell quality 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.
Soon making beaded bracelets morphed into a behavior management strategy to help with challenges of autism and OCD. His OCD most often involves counting, coding and making patterns. He now had a productive outlet for that need. It was fun. People praised him and asked for jewelry. Beading gave him a purpose and helped him manage anxiety.
In 2019 Austin's mother, Leigh Wear, founded Austin's WearABLE Art and began selling his products online. 10% of all jewelry sales are donated to non-profit organizations with a mission to enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities.
In 2021 AUSTIN'S FIDGETS was added to the catalog. Fidgets became very popular in 2017. But have been a staple in our home for over 20 years. Austin uses them as do many individuals with autism, anxiety and ADHD: to relieve stress and improve focus. Our fidgets and boredom busters are sold as kits, monthly mailings and individually.
