I wear an id badge to work everyday, and although I completely understand the need for it, I get a bit tired of wearing one everyday. Perhaps that is because I don't wear a uniform. I like to add jewelry to my outfits and find it hard to wear a nice necklace and an id badge.
As many of you know I have been designing, making, and selling beaded id badge lanyards for over a year. I have enjoyed doing this and selling them to lots of people. I have made them in many different colors. I have lanyards made with resin flower beads, polymer clay beads, Czech glass beads, and semi-precious stones. Sometimes I make them with chain and colorful beads at places along the chain.
However, what about the need for a simple easy to wear lanyard that goes with anything, and allows the wearer to add a beautiful necklace along with the lanyard? You want the lanyard to be elegant, simple, and timeless, but not the center of attention. In response to my own desire for this, and hopefully to my customers, I am developing a new line of "Simple" lanyards. I just posted the first two of those, and more will follow.
I will continue to create colorful fun lanyards, but now you can purchase a basic but beautiful lanyard to wear when you dress for work without giving much thought to how it coordinates with you choice of clothing that day. I would love to know if you like these first two, and if you have ideas for what you would like to see in the future.
