Jewelry - Beaded Badge Lanyards by Dawno
Most of these are my unique take on the badge lanyard. I got tired of the plastic and shoestring straps or metal 'dog tag' style necklaces - I have to dress up sometimes at work! I decided to start making fancier lanyards that would compliment my wardrobe and also double as jewelry. Since I have to wear glasses to read I also thought it would be cool if I could use some of the same designs for eyeglass chains. Thus my design includes two lobster claw clasps that can either hook on a jump ring to a badge clasp or have two eyeglass loops hooked to them. At the end of the day I can simply hook the two lobster claws together and put the badge clasp or eyeglass loops in my purse and I've got a nice necklace to wear out to dinner.

Each convertible piece can be used as either a necklace (some long enough to double) or a badge lanyard or eyeglass chain. All designs made from semi-precious stones, crystal and silver or gold plated materials except for seed-bead designs which use best quality glass seed beads and silver or gold plated findings/spacers and clasps.
