Inspired by the tendency of dyslexics to reverse the letters "p q b d", this design represents dyslexia. Available in either sterling silver or a heavy plate of 14k gold over sterling, these tack pins come in two sizes. The 1" size is perfect for a lapel and the smaller 3/4" size makes an excellent tie tack or hat pin!
Raising Awareness and Funding
Designed to serve as a talisman and a conversation starter, the pqbd symbolizes dyslexia and aims to support the many organizations and educators that promote dyslexia resources and awareness. Wearing a piece from the jewelry collection means wearing a bigger story that needs to be told again and again.
Behind the "pqbd" Design
Inspired by the letters p q b d, this jewelry line is symbolic of dyslexia.
It is a myth that dyslexics read backwards. Rather than a visual problem, their tendency to reverse certain words and letters is actually a processing issue. Handmade in Virginia by Maureen and Rebecca Worth, these pieces are a great conversation starter and raise awareness about dyslexia.
