I spent 4 years in the Middle East serving in the Foreign Service. It gave me many nights to sit and design and make jewelry.  I am now retired and no longer make jewelry but have so much to sell.

Gemstone Beaded Badge Lanyards - Great Option to Ugly Chains!

If you wear an identification badge at work, it's probably hangs from a metal chain or fabric lanyard. I decided that lanyards should be pretty, not boring, so I decided to make beaded lanyards. They look more like jewelry than just something to hang your badge on.
 
I have designed different versions. Some have a ring that moves freely along the lanyard and can be removed so the lanyard can be worn as a necklace. Others have a fixed clasp for you to attach your badge to.  The longer lanyards can be beautiful necklaces when you remove the ring and wrap them twice around your neck.

If you have a special color you would like, I'm happy to take orders.  Just email me at debidemetrion@gmail.com.
