About Us

Clara & Boris Bauer

Boris is Liesel's and Clara’s (they/them) dad. Boris moved from Germany to the US in 1992. Liesel was born in 2002, and Clara was born in 2003. Clara has been diagnosed with severe Anxiety Disorder in 2017 and later also with misophonia.

While Clara worked with their therapist to learn about the tools and methods to cope with severe bouts of anxiety, they both discovered a favorite routine. When Clara was getting anxious they would ask Boris to do the “5 senses countdown”. 5 things you can see, 4 things you can hear, 3 things you can touch, 2 things you can smell and 1 thing you can taste. This coping strategy often worked and helped Clara with the situation and avoid a panic attack.

Clara and Boris started talking about the concept of stimming and soon the idea for Stimm Jewelry was born.
