Hello crafty people. My mom recently commissioned me to make her a lanyard for her badge that she has to wear at work. She wanted a beaded one, so we went to the craft store and she picked the beads that she wanted me to use.

This is what I came up with....


Sorry for the horrible pictures. A photographer I am not.

I made two others a few nights ago for coworkers. Here they are. One requested pick and the other said that she liked the colors in my mom's.





So...what do you think?

I think these are a great idea.  If you have to wear an I.D. badge, why not be stylish about it?  Very pretty!  Cheesy

I like this idea. If I had to wear something like this for work I'd do this too.

I like the mix of blue-green in the first one and the pink one is very cute and funky Cheesy

As for the pictures... try photographing them on a non reflective surface. Daylight is better if you can get it, so you don't have to use the flash. Also, if your camera has a "macro" button (usually looks like a little flower) - press that before you take the picture Cheesy
