My ideal adornment would include my wedding ring, a pair of diamond studs and a signature everyday necklace. I now have two out of the three thanks to Lisa Leonard Designs!
the front of the necklace has my beloved's name along with my kiddos - the back is inscribed with 'hope for a cure T1D'
Now I just need a pair of diamond stud earrings to complete the look! ;)
Next up is a replacement for Ellie's medical id bracelet. I wrote about her Shain's bracelet here, and was thrilled with the whimsical look and unique options. In practice and 8yo busy kid life, however, the bracelet did not hold up. The ink on the individual plastic elements began to wear off and the part where the bracelet 'plugged' into itself became stretched out. Two things we just could not have in a medical id bracelet.
When thinking about a replacement, Ellie wanted something "cute, fun and waterproof" while I wanted something durable and noticeable. I think we found the perfect piece.
A waterproof jelly bracelet from Lauren's Hope
The bracelet is a perfect fit with the 'watchband style' closure and the metal medical id part is attached like a watch face to the bands. Very durable.
We had the option of engraving the back of the metal i.d. tag:
Type 1 Diabetic
I love a win-win situation and this bracelet is perfect. Ellie gets to wear a fashionable piece of jewelry and I get piece of mind.
