Cultured Sea Glass in shades of blue, aqua, and white.
Rather than using a needle Austin carefully hand strings every bead individually. This requires great use of fine motor skills ( which have improved drastically since he started beading). It is a very long process but with beautiful results. (Beads are 8/0 seed beads)
Two nine-inch strands have been secured together with a fun “Beach Bum” charm and include a small sea turtle bead.
The charm can be removed if you prefer. Leave us a note.
The bracelets are designed and crafted by Austin Wear. He is a young adult, diagnosed with autism, intellectual disability, and OCD ( clinical category "symmetry, arranging, counting"). Beading is a therapeutic activity that helps him manage challenging behaviors. The recognition and demand for his work improve his self-worth and give him purpose. The entire designing, crafting, and selling process allows him to experience the dignity of work. Designing and crafting beaded jewelry is a therapeutic and productive activity that improves his quality of life.
