Fashionable and Functional Medical ID Jewelry Saves Lives

With diabetes, autism and Alzheimer's diagnosis becoming more common, it is extremely important that patients wear medical identification of some sort. Wearing medical ID is also a good idea if you take daily medication or have food and drug allergies. The Beadin' Beagle designs fashionable and functional medical ID products such as bracelets, necklaces, key chains, cell phone charms and personalized bag tags.

Boynton Beach, FL, March 11, 2009 --( Recently reported in Diabetes Forecast, the popular diabetic lifestyle magazine published by the American Diabetes Association, the Beadin’ Beagle ( now offers among its unique collection of jewelry items, a medical ID bracelet for kids that is a harmonic blend of fashion and function.

“Many children don't wear medical jewelry because it draws attention to their condition,” as stated in the newsletter. “The Beadin' Beagle now offers a fashionable alternative to the standard medical identification bracelet!”

Diabetes and food allergies are the most common reasons for which children wear medical identification bracelets. The Beadin’ Beagle creates jewelry with the medical plates for a fun and attractive piece to wear.

Tina Sprigg, owner of The Beadin’ Beagle, gained her inspiration for this idea from a friend who was seeking a medical identification bracelet that was outside the mainstream of those typically offered in drug stores or retail stores.

Combining her already existing line of jewelry, Tina incorporated the medical plates into her jewelry. After posting them on her web site, the bracelets received generous momentum in popularity.

“The response has been overwhelming,” explains Tina. “Customers are happy to have a bracelet that children (with medical conditions) will wear without embarrassment.”

Prices for the jewelry items range from $35.00 to $60.00. The Beadin’ Beagle also offers a line of medical identification jewelry for adults and other medical accessories such as cell phone charms, key chains, necklaces and personalized bag tags.
