I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world who has to wear an ID badge/key card for work and hates the options you have for wearing it. It's hard for me to use the little belt clips with the retractable cord because of the type of clothes I wear, plus I'm a klutz and I know I would catch them on something so I wear it on a lanyard around my neck. The lanyards that are out there are out of fabric tape or cord and they don't look good with work clothes. I'd been trying to find a good solution but had been having problems finding a good way to attach the badge. I finally found silver plated swivel hooks at Fire Mountain Gems and made my first lanyard last night.
It made out of blue Czech druk glass beads, black glass beads I found I had hanging around, silver tube beads, silver findings and the silver plated swivel hook. I wore it to work today and the reaction from my co-workers just blew me away. I think I am going to be a very busy girl making these for a while. The only change for those will be that I am going to use silver plated brass beads to keep the costs down. I will, of course, post pictures as I get those made. I also may try to do a step by step on how I make them.
