Then I Saw a Solution to Unwearable Medical Jewelry
Then one day in school, I noticed another girl who wore a medical bracelet, and she had wire wrapped beautiful glass beads on links to attach her medical ID - no curb chain there! And it fit beautifully. I was amazed. Who knew that was possible?
Well, now I know. My ideal medical id bracelet will have wire wrapped beaded links that are interchangeable with the medical tag, so I can match my outfit. The links will be fairly heavy, to balance the medical ID plate in the middle of the bracelet, so it doesn't slide around my wrist all day. And the bracelet will have a toggle clasp, rather than a lobster claw clasp. I like toggles so much better than lobster claw clasps - there was a time when I didn't know there was another kind, and I had to clasp and unclasp my darn bracelet myself every day!
You can find many generic medical id pendants and bracelets in drug stores, near the pharmacy, and there are also many medical id tag sellers online who will engrave your information and customize it for you.
I had to have some information changed, so I am waiting for my new medical id tag to come in the mail. I can't wait to dress it up!
Here are just a few pictures to give you some ideas to play around with:

3. This is one of the patterns available in Dale Armstrong's Intermediate DVD Series
. It allows both sides of the item being wrapped to be viewed. Very important with a medical Id charm.
4. This also is available in Dale Armstrong's Intermediate DVD Series
This bracelet design would take some modifying of the center section, but what a fun challenge and a beautiful way to frame the Medical alert Id.

could easily be used to connect to a Medical Alert ID.
