'The mutli-colored puzzle piece has become the international symbol of autism. Its significance has become multi-faceted. For some it represents the mystery and complexity of the disorder, for others it represents the mechanical nature of an autistics persons thought process. The bright colors are said to represent hope.'

I created a magnet using the puzzle pieces.


I started with some clay, rolled and cut a circle.  I put some holes in the piece before I baked it.



After the base was baked I painted the edge black.


The puzzle pieces and the letters are Um Wow Studio chip piecec paintd with Distress paint.
I punched holes in the puzzle pieces and used jump rings to hang.


I used the 1.5 inch white silk ribbon stain with Distress Spray to match the BLUE puzzle piece.


I glued a magnet on the back and VIOLA!


Spread the LOVE!!
