Henco Badenhorst , 22 years old , was diagnosed as autistic at the age of 3.He was admitted to a school of autism at the age of 5
and after he completed his scholastic training, was introduced to beading. He showed a keen interest to it and started with
private classes. Although Henco cannot speak and communication is a huge obstacle, he has a brilliant mind and
could memorize any pattern easily.
WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?
The idea of making a liquorice theme with artist’s clay, happened accidentally and was immediately very popular. Henco carried on
with the beading independently and started producing enough stock to exhibit at markets and is now available to order on line.
There is a variety of earrings, armbands, necklaces, key rings other products in either a fruity or traditional liquorice colour.
Henco also has his paintings,with liquorice themes, also available to be ordered as birthday cards.
New exciting products are being developed constantly.
