"Sensory-Friendly" means this jewelry is lightweight, easy to wear, and non-irritating--an ideal gift for those with hypersensitivity associated with autism and Asperger's, or who find most jewelry difficult to wear. The iridescent mermaid scales are beautiful to look at, and the glitter calm bottle necklaces are fun to play with. They are great for stimming and calming anxiety. All pieces at the table are hand-crafted by Alyssa Huber, and all proceeds will support her transition to independent living. (More info on Alyssa's transition!)
