About

Robots Make Shrinky Dinks, Communicate With World

**Spacerobot Studio donates 10% of all sales to ASAN, the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. We believe in giving back to our community!**

We are on the autism spectrum, and also on the multiplicity spectrum, and struggled for a long time with communication and self-expression.

One day we got the idea to make a "Status Necklace"- a necklace with charms made of shrinky dinks, stacked on top of each other like a flip book, showing various things about how we were feeling. Who was there, how overloaded we were, what pronouns we wanted people to use for us at the moment, things like that. When verbal communication was freezing up on us, or when anxiety was preventing us from saying how we felt, flipping a charm on a necklace was often a form of communication that actually WORKED.

A lot of people we met expressed interest in the status necklaces, and we worked on more designs. We've heard of other autistic people using changing symbols to communicate - The interaction badges used at Autreat being one example - and wanted to come up with designs that would be easy to use, easy to wear, useful for communication, or just plain fun.

Thus, Spacerobot Studio was born.

We're also using it to make jewelry designs for things that seem sorely lacking in pride jewelry- Neurodiversity, Autism, and Multiplicity, along with other LGBTQ+ pride jewelry.

We also design stim toy jewelry, steampunk compass jewelry, and knitwear. We have a huge knitting perseveration and hope people enjoy our knitwear designs!

We are members of the Washington State chapter of ASAN. http://autisticadvocacy.org/

Frequently asked questions
You don't have the pronoun I use for your gender pronoun necklace. Can you add this pronoun?

If you see a pronoun that we are missing, please send us a message and we will try to add it! It may take time for us to get around to making the new charms, but we are always looking to add more pronouns options.

Can you do custom orders?

Unfortunately we don't have the time or spoons to make custom necklaces or charms right now. Please check out what we have available in the shop!

There is one exception - If you'd like a communication necklace with a combination of different charms that we already have in our shop, and those charms are of the same shape, send us a message! For example: A necklace with 3 of the battery charms, and 1 pronoun charm. We can do this! We can fit up to 4 charms per communication necklace.

We can *sometimes* do custom knit hats depending on our available time and energy. Contact us if interested!

I'm not autistic. Can I still use your communication necklaces?

Yes! We firmly believe that communication tools should be available to anyone who finds them useful, no matter their neurotype.

If a communication necklace would be useful or fun for you, and you want to get it, go ahead! It is not appropriation.
