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 pastel blue, purple, and pink. 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'' gunmetal tone rolo chain. The backs of the charms are printed with a tiny grey star pattern.
This necklace is an alternate-color version of our popular battery necklace. For the standard color version, click here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/214310611/communication-necklace-batteries-silver
The charms are sealed with acrylic and water-resistant but not waterproof, not recommended to wear this necklace in water.
Due to the handmade nature of these charms and how shrinky dinks work, there may be minor variations and irregularities in the size and shape of each charm, and some necklaces may be more rectangular than square. It makes each necklace unique. :)

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.
Unfortunately we don't have the time or spoons to make custom necklaces, hats, 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.
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.

The shipping was incredibly fast, and the necklace is really lovely. The colors of mine are a little more vibrant than they appear in the photo on my screen, and they look really great on the black background. The tiles are a good size: a bit bigger than the tip of my thumb, and very lightweight and comfortable. The large jump rings make it easy to flip the icons and also easy to change chains-- the chain it came with is very nice and a good length for most things, but doesn't work with all my shirts/dresses. If I could buy a fourth tile of just the battery outline with no bars left, I totally would. To me, the one bar icon feels like "I still have a little energy left" and I'd love a fourth tile for "I am completely drained, don't even talk to me."

Unfortunately, my negative experiences with this product slightly outweigh the positive. To start off, the colours don't appear as vibrant on the product in real life as they do on the photo. This isn't really a big deal though, it still looks good. However, I've had significant issues with the durability of the charms. I started to experience a slight flaking/peeling appearance on the charms, and any attempt to remove it just caused further damage to the charm. Also, despite the listing stating so, it is not water resistant AT ALL. Even slight contact with water causes almost immediate colour bleeding which damages the charm and bleeds onto the other charms. Having paid almost $30 CAD on a fixed income for this communication aid with less than semi-regular use over maybe a month, I'm disappointed.

I love this necklace! The colours are brighter than they appear in the image, and it flips easily. I have the cat necklace from this shop too, and this one is just as good. I like being able to express different ideas; emotions or energy, depending on which necklace I'm wearing. This is the third necklace I've bought from this shop, and I love it as much as the first two!

Love this!! I'd like to add that you REALLY shouldn't get it wet lol. I did on accident and the design is faded a bit but it still looks nice. cheers!!

It's perfect. Substantial enough that it can be easily seen and feels durable, but not too big or clunky either. I like that the chain is long enough that I can use the clasp or just pull it on over my head if it's a low-battery day.
