Beaded lanyards crafted from Swarovski crystals, pearls or even semi-precious beads and added seed beads combines fashion with function and complement any attire. They are pricier but as they are so beautiful well worth the extra cost and the effect quite stunning.
Lanyards are so easy to make, much like making a long beaded necklace, and they really are a cute and stylish way to complete any outfit for work.
They are a great project to start your beginner beading. You can personalize your beaded lanyard by substituting your own choice of beads and colors to suit your style! Showcase a focal bead or a special feature you can incorporate into the design.
Whatever beaded lanyards you choose, they provide an attractive eye catching piece of jewelry to wear on a day to day basis.
The most common length for a lanyard is 36″ (91.44 cm), but can be anywhere from 30″ (76.2 cm) to 44″ (111.76 cm) so you can personalize this length to suit your own preferences. Because of the long length a lanyard rarely has a clasp, although if required in the workplace or for safety reasons they can be designed with a magnet clasp.
At the end of the lanyard is usually found a clip or hook or key ring of some sort. They come in different shapes and sizes, one of the most popular is what is referred to as a ‘lobster clasp,’ these are usually larger than the ones used for your beaded necklaces.
Many of the large lobster clasps are swivel which allows them to spin on the end of the lanyards. There are a number of other lanyard clips that swivel and these are helpful in keeping the items from becoming tangled.
Handbag, backpacks, mobiles are a few of the ones listed under this heading. Created with a mixture of beads and charms they are very trendy beaded jewelry. They are easy to make and can become a beautiful gift especially if your choose the birthstone beads for the person receiving the present.
Now let’s not forget the beautiful beaded eyeglass lanyard, also known as eyeglass leash, eyeglass necklace, beaded eyeglass chain, beaded eyeglass holders that are an attractive yet perfect way to keep track of your expensive glasses and sunglasses.
