These are an awesome wearable sensory tool, feel amazing to use & look good with anything. Roll the beads between fingers whilst wearing it. Wearable sensory tools are often most effective as the hand starts to use them often before we consciously register we need it, helping assist with regulation.
The weighted stainless steel beads roll between fingers beautifully. Many rub the cord also. This fidget is super soft in effect. You can push your fingers in between the beads for a similar sensation to the pea popper.
It is particularly great for those that stim with fabric, Blu-Tack rollers or like low sensory input as it glides between the fingers & is very calming. It is small, discreet and quiet. Given it is a quiet fidget, it makes it ideal for the workplace, travel or the classroom.
These have been effective for those who
hair twirl or pulling
stim with fabric
roll Blu-Tac (NOTE : SPEKS range also helpful to replace this also)
love squishies and soft sensory input
also wonderful for decreasing agitation.
They come in one size that will fit all but can easily be shortened to the wearer's preferred length (see below). They have a break away clasp for safety if pulled & come in a storage container.
To shorten necklace:
Simply cut and retie knot at each end to the desired length & pull knot back into the casing of the clasp. We find the easiest way to find optimum length is to have arms at right angle across belly. The bead length should be about at this height.
