A strong simple ball chain ID card holder lanyard to wear around your neck all day without unpleasant skin reactions, or fussy doodads that tangle your hair.


Stainless steel is not as evenly bright as plated chain. It looks like shiny metal. It is also very stable and will not tarnish or rust or react with your skin.

"Small" refers to the thickness of the ball chain not the length.
I make all my lanyards 36" long unless you request a different length. These can be shortened with wire cutters.

This size is good for women. I recommend the "medium" size for men, available in my shop.

The "small" ball chain is thicker than the ball chain used in jewelry. This is the size commonly used on ceiling fan pull chains.
In ball chain lingo it's #6 ball chain, or 1/8" (3.2mm) wide, 6 balls per inch.

Everything is solid stainless steel EXCEPT the clip, but I continue to search for these in SS....
Stainless steel is much more expensive than plated metal, and more difficult to work with.

This lanyard is available in other sizes and materials in my shop SimpleLanyards:
