Meet our Designer of Handcrafted Medical Alert Jewelry


This post is brought to you by our very own silversmith. Ann Kathryn came to Lauren's Hope with a metal and jewelry design degree and has wowed us with her eye for design, creativity and skill. She wanted to share with all of you her thoughts on creating custom medical alert jewelry for Lauren's Hope customers.


newann katblog pictureI became a part of the Lauren's Hope team almost two years ago when the owners were looking to expand the company and add on a jewelry design studio. I was thrilled to land the job and immediately started sketching out designs.

From there, we got the work space together and built our studio with the necessary tools and precious metals to create the sterling silver medical alert jewelry you can find on our site. Since then, I have designed dozens of sterling silver medical alert bracelets, medical alert pendants and earrings for Lauren's Hope-all that were created right here in the jewelry studio!

It has been great to see the company grow and to know that I am a part of that growth. Figuring out what type of jewelry will sell and trying to make it as efficiently as possible is always a challenge, but it is so exciting for us when a design takes off! We are constantly coming up with new handcrafted sterling silver medical alert designs, hoping to appeal to a wide variety of our customers.

Here are just a few of my handcrafted designs. I would love hear from any of you who currently wear one of my handcrafted medical ID's!

So this is where I need your help!

I want to hear from you; what would you be interested in seeing? Several of our best-sellers have been inspired from custom bracelets that I have made. So, if you're not finding exactly what you're looking for, let us know what you'd like to see!


I love the handcrafted designs, but find that many of them are larger and tend to get caught on things, making them a bit impractical for everyday wear...your designs are wonderful though..

I have F14. Unfortunately it broke one night while I was sleeping, but I loved it so much I ordered another one. It absolutely goes with every outfit I own. So I am hoping this one does not break.

My husband bought me PN1 Heart necklace after I got out of the hospital with CHF: I did not want to wear Medial alert Jewelery, but my doctor suggested that I do so. My husband found you on the net and so started my small collection of your wonderful jewelery.

medical id jewelry never looked so good!

OK, so why not have an ID for all 
seasons: winter white with snow 
flakes or ice crystals; spring  
flowers in a field (not the field, 
of course) with daisies, etc., 
summer with roses, tulips, and 
dogwood, and fall with yellow and 
red leaves, pumpkins and such. 
The winter scene could be on a snow 
flake, spring on a tulip, fall on 
a red leaf. Anyway, just thinking. 
...or a dog, a cat, a rabbit, a 
horse, a house, a car, your zodiac 
sign. Again, another brain storm. 
I guess, more storm than brain.

Sue, What a kind and generous husband you have! You are certainly one lucky lady. Did you know that the Mon Cheri Pendant was Ann Katherine's very first piece? I'll let you in on a little known fact...due to the unique shape of this piece a customer chose to have a Mon Cheri inspired heart tattooed on her wrist with her medical information tattooed inside the heart. Now, that's love! You can see a photo of the tattoo on our facebook page.www.facebook.com/LaurensHopeID

Jessica, I couldn't have said it better myself! I feel so lucky to work for a company that works so incredibly hard and does such a superb job of combining safety with style. Ann Katherine has done a fine job of bringing art into medical jewelry.

Linda, You have such a way with words! You must be writer. I love your suggestions and am going to pass them off as my own during our next product brainstorming session. I'm just kidding! Thanks so much for bringing your charm and wit to our blog. We appreciate you!

I would like to see a medical alert bracelet that can be used as a charm bracelet.
Posted @ Tuesday, March 08, 2011 9:23 AM by Lydia Reed
Hi Lydia, 
I love charm bracelets too. Take a look at item number A76 on the website. It's a rolo chain and comes with the first charm. HOPE of course! This site offers charms but as with all great charm bracelets you can add to it over the years. Have a wonderful day!

Lydia, It looks like LeAnn told you about our A76 Rolo Chain medical ID bracelet. I just wanted to add a few links so that you could view both the bracelet and the charms.

As a matter of fact, I do write 
stories, poems and have had some 
published articles...and I really 
love to do it:when I'm in the mood. 
However, I thought of another: since one of my grandchildren had 
her first baby Jan.28, 2011, I was 
exposed to families who didn't have 
their baby as easy or blessed; so, 
matching ID's for new moms and new 
babies to show their blood type, 
premie, any difficulty with heart or lungs, etc. This could be a step in yet another direction.  
Babies could use an anklet that is 
soft, small, bright colors with 
enough info on them that it would 
be feasible to use, and updating 
them as they grow not only in info 
but in size. Matching moms could 
be the adult size as you are now 
doing, only in matching sets. 
Thanks for the opportunity to give 
you some thoughts.

hi, I only have one of the medical id braclets but I it. But, I do agree on the comment of woman ,esp,wanting a smaller id. I had one , before my diabetes went into remission, that was smaller and made of gold that was quite attractive for everyday wear and went w/ everything. But, that was before I found you and I don't think I will go back to this other place for a new braclet. Love the whole atmosphere and love and care you put into each customer and item. God Bless

Bunny, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our products as well as offer new and fashionable medical ID's. It sounds like you are asking for a smaller medical ID tag or perhaps a smaller bracelet. I encourage you to take a look at aour gold category for women. You'll find an array of beautiful gold medical ID bracelets. We also offer a gold plated medical ID tag, which looks great when paired with a gold bracelet. Our ID tags have always been 1 1/2" in length because 1. You need plenty of room to engrave your medical info. in a clear and legible format 2. You want first responders to see your medical ID tag.  
Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

i never thought I would have to wear Medical alert bracelet but after me and my husband's accident and I got a DVT in my left leg and got put on Coumadin. i also gained a lot of allergies for meds. My husband and doctor said for me to get a bracelet. I found your collection and I love it. So far I have bought 2 different bracelets. I get a lot of comments at church about my bracelet. I have gave out your internet address a lot these days. Thank you for letting me feel normal with the health issues I have. God bless.
