My wife is a teacher at our local middle school and college, and she said it would be nice if I could create a bracelet for those that would like to help bring about Autism awareness, since she works with many special needs students. I have seen this design before, along with the puzzle piece charm, and thought I'd like to take this project one step further - I contacted the Autism Society and asked if I could use their "Puzzle Piece Ribbon" logo on a flyer for my wife's school, and that I'd like to donate $5 for each bracelet sold to their organization. They sent me the paperwork I needed to fill out, and I'm now making these bracelets for National Autism Awareness Month, which is every April!
These bracelets are part aluminum rings, part rubber rings. They stretch over the hand so no need for a clasp, and the puzzle piece sits prominently on your wrist, surronded by the 4 colors that make up the Autism Awareness ribbon. I've made them in sizes of 6", 7" and 8" for children, women and men respectively. Please visit the Town Crier on my website to learn about a clever way to measure your wrist for a comfortable fit!
