All Fragile X Syndrome jewelry comes with a card in English or Japanese that explains how every bead and charm on this beautiful Fragile X syndrome Bracelet helps teach people about children with Fragile X Syndrome:
The Fragile X Syndrome Bracelets and Fragile X Keychain/Purse Charm are versions of our Autism Awareness Bracelet and Keychain/Purse Charm, specifically made to bring attention and awareness to Fragile X Syndrome!
According to the FRAXA (Fragile X Research Foundation), Fragile X Syndrome is the leading genetic cause of autism.
It's because of this connection that we've created the Fragile X Syndrome Bracelet and Keychain/Purse Charm.
These handmade pieces acknowledge the overlapping relationship between Fragile X Syndrome and Autism with an iridescent "X" next to the 'autism' puzzle piece.
They feature - Beautiful beads of Czech glass, moonstone, mountain jade and hemitite, with charming, USA made lead-free pewter charms.
One of these charms is an "X" charm with light catching multi-colored enamel highlighting it. This charm overlaps the puzzle charm, just like Fragile X Syndrome and Autism overlap.
Like all our Autism Awareness Jewelry, every LucasWorks Fragile X Syndrome Bracelet and Fragile X Keychain/Purse Charm is presented in a beautiful velvet jewelry pouch, with a card that explains how the beads and charms teach people about Fragile X Syndrome.
The bracelet slides on easily, thanks to it's "stretchy" construction. No need for a helper to fasten it for you!
Our Fragile X Syndrome bracelet comes in your choice of sizes:
Made by people with autism and developmental disabilities - Like all of our Autism Awareness Jewelry, these beautiful Fragile X Syndrome items are handmade by people with autism and developmental disabilities.
They learn real job skills assembling these products, and also learn and practice appropriate "on the job" behavior, like dressing properly, using words or pictures to ask for materials, washing their hands, etc.
Lauren Padgett was inspired to create the "Fragile X" line of products when the company was invited to attend a cook out and fundraiser for Fragile X Syndrome.
Lauren discovered that Fragile X Syndrome is incredibly similar to autism in many ways. In fact, the two conditions overlap each other, not just in symptoms, but also in treatments.
