Giveaway Contest: Medic Alert Bracelet by Michelle

November 8th, 2010 by | Tags: | 34 Comments »

Cochlear Implant Online is excited to host another giveaway contest.  This time, it will be open to international readers!  Michelle at Custom Leather Jewelry by Michelle Verbeeck, a shop at Etsy.com, is generously offering one of her fashionable medic alert bracelets to give away.

All of us, cochlear implant users, should be wearing a medic alert bracelet or some form of medic alert jewelry as we cannot have an MRI scan and surgeons cannot use monopolar cautery, a surgical tool, in surgeries.  Rather being safe than sorry, it is a best to wear a medic alert jewelry piece so that whenever something happens to us, emergency officials can be aware of our issues.  However, I understand that many medic alert jewelry pieces are ugly and unfashionable, and I will admit that I refused to wear one during my teen years. Michelle is here to change this situation!  She wants to us to be safe and fashionable at the same time.  Her leather medic alert bracelets are absolutely trendy and would look great on both boys and girls, and men and women.

A winner will receive a bracelet that is either 1 inch, 1 1/4 inch or 1 1/2 inch wide cuff, a choice of leather color, a choice of metal, a buckle or snap closure, and of course, their own choice medic info on their bracelet.  She has a WIDE variety of choices of colors of leather:  black, chocolate brown, golden brown, red, mahogany, maroon, orange, blue, royal blue, purple, yellow, green, kelly green, navy blue, turquoise, and deep teal.  She also has a good selection of metals: brass, nickel, copper, or sterling silver.

Thanks, I’ve been looking for something like this!

I’d love deep teal leather with a brass plate, probably 1-1/2″ wide, given my medical stuff.

I shared this on my facebook status, but will go back and add my own comment.

November 9, 2010 at 8:24 am

hi all,
I am the sponsor of this contest! I wish you all luck!

And I custom make each bracelet so if you need something for someone you are not locked into just the sizes on my site. I work with each person individually to come up with something that works for you.

I just wanted to let you all know that.

November 9, 2010 at 4:04 pm

What a neat idea. Not many things out there for cochlear implant users. Our little girl is 3 and her implants are a blessing for her and us. I love the leather with silver. Thank you!
