Braille Beads are designed for students or individuals who are blind or have low vision. They are small, plastic rectangles that have braille on one side and incised print letters on the other side. Each bead has two holes through which wire or cord may be threaded. Also included are image bead manipulatives, such as flower, peace sign, heart, and circle. Braille Bead dimensions are 10 millimeters tall by 8 millimeters wide by 5 millimeters deep (braille height is 0.52 millimeters).

Making jewelry teaches users to:

  • Plan (a design or a word)
  • Organize materials (wire, cord, needles, scissors)
  • Sort (shape, size, color)
  • Practice fine motor skills (stringing beads, tying knots)

Braille Beads: APH Starter Kit includes:

  • Necklace, Bracelet, and Fob Assortment Pack
  • Braille Beads Pack (red, yellow, blue, green, orange, pink, white, black)
  • Pony Beads Pack (red, yellow, blue, green, orange, pink, white, black)
  • Clear adhesive braille labels
  • Bejeweled with Braille: Instructions for Making Braille Jewelry, Large Print, Braille, and on CD-ROM
  • Optional Braille Beading Tray with Jars

APH offers the Braille Beading Tray with Jars as a separate product. The tray and jars keep the beads organized while beading. The tray holds up to seven jars of Braille Beads. Each recessed circle that holds a jar of Braille Beads has a fluted space directly in front of it to hold the same color Pony beads. The tray has a workspace for placing beads and experimenting with designs before stringing them onto a cord or wire. This workspace has a beading mat to prevent the Pony beads from rolling. A smaller space on the right holds jewelry findings or tools for cutting elastic or bending wires.
