Sometimes a customers story really touches your heart. This stunning pendant is on its way to a 15 year old who is coming to terms with being on the #autism #spectrum with the support of his amazing grandmother who lovingly wanted to reinforce the fact that, as she said “It’s OK to be different. Hard…but OK.” I hope he loves it as much as I loved making it and I think she made a wonderful choice! What an honour to be a part of something so special!
I had a hard time capturing how stunning this rock is. It is so much more beautiful in person! #autismawareness #autismawarenessmonth
The BEST Fidget Spinner Ever! <== Click to see a video I took of my son using his Autism Awareness Pendant as a fidget spinner that has stopped him from biting his nails! I actually noticed that his nails need clipped again! This is the only fidget spinner that hasn’t been lost, stolen or broken and has sparked many conversations!
I was so excited to be asked to return to the Victoria Autism Expo! It’s a great event and there are even more vendors and businesses registered this year! And it’s a full day! 9-5! Aaaaaand IT’S FREEEEEEE! The workshops sound so fantastic that I almost wish I wasn’t a vendor so I could go to them!
I have a huge inventory of #AutismAwareness pendants that are not posted to my online store yet that I have been saving for this event! Please come check out the Expo and choose the PERFECT fidget spinner for $10 off at the event on Saturday!
Don’t forget that all my rocks are found on the beaches of beautiful Vancouver Island!
Watch a promotional video clip I did for the upcoming 2nd Annual Greater Victoria Autism Resource Fair on May 5th 2012 from 10AM-3:30PM. I was so nervous!

I registered for a table at the Autism Awareness Fair here in Victoria on May 5th to sell my Autism Awareness Pendants! Kinda nervous but excited!
Also, I brought my swivels into an engraver to get my logo etched on them. I’m anxious to see how they turn out and then get attaching all my Autism Awareness Pendants to them.
The symbol for Autism is a puzzle piece, and is very fitting as Autism is a puzzling syndrome for sure. Having two boys (5 and 7) on the spectrum makes this cause very near and dear to my heart. I want to do my part to help raise awareness. For those of you who are curious, here is a sneak peek at what they will look like and the process I go through to make them. They are not finished yet, as I am still waiting for my swivels from the engraver, and I hope to have a lot more made soon-but I am thrilled with how they turned out!
All of these pendants will be attached to swivels for free spinning movement. To see examples of my pendants swivel, Click here to view my YouTube page
