I love jewelry. I bought a medical alert bracelet (recommended by my doctor) and a necklace and charm that I wear every time I go out. The bracelet has Diabetic on the top and my name on the flip side. It has a stretch band so it can easily be checked in an emergency. This allowed me to combine something I love with something I need.

Just be careful. Do not let whatever you wear EVER be confused as "jewelry", something that will get overlooked, solely because it is pretty.

My sister and I make and sell jewelry. We used to sell Stainless Steel jewelry and I go a Titanium Medical Alert Bracelet from one of wholesalers for next to nothing. I will repair beaded medical alert bracelets at no cost depending on how it is made. Last week a woman asked if I could repair her bracelet. She did not have all of the beads and the beads were plastic. When I told her I could remake the bracelet using gemstones and beading wire for $15 she got upset and told me I needed to go buy plastic beads and fix it for free. I told her I don't use plastic beads and if she bought the beads and the stretch magic I would fix it at no cost. She chewed me out. There were three other people at the market with handcrafted jewelry and she did the same thing to them. When she came back again and told me she would buy the stuff, she told me when I fixed it I better do a good job. I told her I under no circumstances would I fix her bracelet. The $15 dollars was a discount because for special problems I charge $20 dollars.

I am not a jewelry fan, but I always have my ID bracelet on, even when I'm at home. It never comes off.

I got a nice bracelet on Etsy. It's a paracord bracelet and it's bright pink. I wear it to the gym. I love it. :0)
