My son has several food allergies, and family and friends seem to have a very hard time remembering what these things are. So, I engraved some wooden beads with his allergies, and my friend made them into an amber necklace, which you can see here. I am now making custom beads and all sorts of allergy and other medical necklaces and bracelets. Here are a few that I recently completed:

This photo was graciously edited by our own Kiss915 (you can get some of her yummy treats here).

This one says "celiac" on the other side.

You can see more allergy alert jewelry on my etsy site. I am also working on some shoe beads and charms that can be attached to clothing, backpacks, etc. So keep your eye out for those!  And right now, I am offering these new items at a reduced, introductory price!
