Deployment Bling

A deployment bracelet was on my wish list for 2 reasons:
1. I want to show my support for my husband and our troops!
2. I think they're super cute!

My Bracelet - LOVE IT!!
Sheree (from Beadwork by Sheree) was nice enough to make a bracelet for me. I knew by looking at the bracelets online that I'd LOVE it, but it's SO much better in person. The sterling silver beads are bright and shiny and the colored crystals are vibrant! I love the fact that you can personalize these bracelets any way you can put your soldier's name on it or you can do a Support Our Troops bracelet. There are also several (I mean A LOT of) charms to choose from that will make the bracelet yours. Once you finally decide what charms you want and what you want it to say you have one more decision...what kind of clasp do you want? I opted for the lobster clasp so I don't have to worry about losing it. Wha-laa, you're done! Now you just need to wait for it in the mail! Oh, did I mention you get FREE SHIPPING?

Sheree gives 10% from each Deployment Bracelet® sold to the USO. She chose the USO because they cover both the soldiers and their families. She also likes that they cater to all the branches of the military. Charitable giving is a large part of who she is and the donations she gives from the Deployment Bracelets® is just a small way she can show her support.

Sheree came up with the idea of the Deployment Bracelet® when her close friend's husband was going to be deployed in 2002. Her friend's reaction to the bracelet is what made her decide to make it available to others. Sheree's hope is that the bracelet will make people feel a little more in touch with their deployed loved one and at the same time it shows their loved one that they are being supported. She takes a digital photo of each bracelet she makes and sends it to the customer. They can then send the photo on to those who are deployed via email so they can actually see what the bracelet looks like. She also offers Men's and Children's bracelets.

Thank you, Sheree!! I love it and so does my husband!!
