Ella's Medic Alert was getting old and a bit tight thanks to the 10 pound weight gain since diagnosis (we finally hit the 50 lb mark - Yahoo!)
I was just thinking to myself that I needed to order Ella a new Medic Alert when I got an email from the owner of a personalized and medical jewelry company called StickyJ offering to send some samples for me to review.
The girls and I jumped on the computer and started looking at the website and had such a hard time picking out what we wanted because there were so many styles to choose from! Beaded, silicone, leather, sports, even macramé bracelets, tons of medic alert necklaces and numerous styles of ID tags (even shoe ID tags!) offered in different shapes and colors.
I really liked that many of their stainless steel medical children's bracelets are made of 316L surgical stainless steel which has increased resistance to chloride corrosion because Ella spends half of her life in the pool or bathtub and never takes her medic alert off.
I was also impressed with how reasonable the pricing was. For example, my daughters LOVE glow-in-the-dark bracelets. I saw this one on StickyJ's website for $22.95 which is almost identical to one offered at $44.95 elsewhere.
With prices like these, I can afford to order the girls bracelets to match any outfit as well as one for every holiday! And yes, I absolutely ordered one for Halloween that we found in the clearance section!!
Customer Service was awesome. I sent in my order as well as the girls' actual wrist sizes. Thank goodness for Pat in Customer Service because she reviewed my order and then recommended different sizes for the bracelets as well as different shaped Medic ID tags that would better fit my daughters' small wrists.
I placed my order Sept 12th. Customer Service emailed me within 2 days and the complete order was shipped to my house by September 20th.
The girls were beyond excited to open up the package and find their jewelry in a pretty little red bag. I was impressed with the quality of the jewelry and the engraving. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the engraving came already filled in black.
How cute is this one? Found it in the Clearance section, too!
Livie's ID bracelet not only glows-in-the-dark but also has mood-changing beads!
The back side has her name and our cell phone numbers.
Sure beats writing your cell # on your kid's arm with a black sharpie when you go to Disneyland!
Ella picked a blue rubber bracelet with sterling silver hearts
Blue for diabetes and hearts because, well, she's a girly-girl.
I will absolutely be placing more orders through StickyJ in the future. I had such a wonderful experience getting to know the owner of the company as well as working with their Customer Service department. The quality is great and it's offered at a very reasonable price.
Plus you get free shipping on orders over $50 in the United States.
I'm a sucker for free shipping.
SO...now the good stuff.

Since writing this blog is about as high-tech as I get, here's how it's going to go down:
1. Leave a comment with your favorite StickyJ item, get 1 entry
2. Like StickyJ's facebook page, comment that you did, and get another entry
3. Send a Tweet about @StickyJewelry, comment that you did, and get another entry
I'll leave it open until Friday at which point I will throw all of your entries into a jar and let Ella pick a name. I'll probably even throw a blind fold on her to make it official.
In the meantime, head on over to StickyJ and check out all that they offer - there's so much more than just Medic Alerts!
Best of Luck
Thanks to StickyJ for the opportunity to review the jewelry! So glad we found each other.
