Things in life take energy. Use this necklace to show the world how much energy you have remaining and how you are feeling, as a form of communication and self-advocacy, or just for fun. Or if you happen to be a robot and don't have a battery level indicator, and are annoyed at this fact and want to use shrinky dinks to show the world instead.
This necklace has three charms each showing a different battery level, in green, yellow, and red. Flip the charms over to change which one is showing. Each charm is a little under 1'' square, made from inkjet shrinky dink plastic, and hanging on a 24'' silver tone rolo chain. The backs of the charms are printed with a tiny grey star pattern.
The charms are sealed with clear resin and water-resistant but not waterproof, not recommended to expose to water.
Due to the handmade nature of these charms, there may be minor variations and irregularities in the size and shape of each charm. It makes each necklace unique. :)

If you'd like a custom communication necklace with a combination of different charms that I already have in my shop, and those charms are of the same shape, send me a message! For example: A necklace with 3 of the battery charms, and 1 pronoun charm. I can do this! I can fit up to 4 charms per communication necklace.
Unfortunately I am not able to make custom charms - The process for making the charms takes several weeks, and the resin I use to coat the charms needs warm weather to cure properly, so I only make charms in big batches a few times a year during the summer and can't do it on request.
I can *sometimes* do custom knit hats or scarves depending on my available time and energy. Contact me if interested!
Yes! I 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.
Most knit items that are made from acrylic or mostly acrylic are machine washable and dryable. Use gentle settings. Knit items may become softer and fuzzier with washing. To keep them closer to their original state, you can also hand wash them gently and lay them flat to dry.
Wool items, or items with high wool or animal fiber content, can be trickier to wash. If placed in a washing machine or washed with high warmth, these items can shrink and felt, so do not do this or your knit item may be ruined. It is best to hand wash these items gently in cold water, and lay them flat to air dry.
The charms are printed with inkjet ink and need to be kept dry to stay in best condition. I seal both sides of the charms with resin to get the charms as water resistant as possible, but if exposed to water or dampness there is still a chance that water can soak through the coating and the ink can run. If the charms get wet, wipe them dry asap, and make sure there is no moisture trapped between charms. If dirt gets on the charms, wipe with a dry cloth. If that does not remove the dirt, a fast-drying wipe like those used for electronics may work.
The resin coating is fairly sturdy, but unfortunately I cannot guarantee that water or any liquid cleaning products will not damage the charms.
Spacerobot Studio is located in the USA, and is currently able to ship to the USA, Canada, and Australia.
Located somewhere else? Feel free to send me a message and I can look into shipping regulations for your country and see if I can ship there.
Due to disruptions from the pandemic, shipping delays are more common at this time, and international shipping may take several weeks to arrive.
I am unfortunately not able to ship to countries in the EU at this time.

As a person with sensory issues, I found I needed to put some washi tape on the back of these to stop the clacking, but it feels good to have some backup modes of communication for bad days <3

I love it! And I love that the chain is extra long and hangs lower on my chest because then I can wear multiple necklaces at once
