Badge Reels & Lanyards -Just For You- Stylish Workplace Fashion IDs

I believe you should look terrific every day, and that includes the time you are working at your job. Are you required to wear an id badge on your job? If so, then take a look at my badge reels and lanyards that offer you a means to wear the id badge in an attractive and stylish way.

Why Did I Start Creating Badge Reels and Lanyards?
In the fall of 2010 I began creating beaded lanyards and later added badge reels to my jewelry shop. I knew these solved a problem for me personally. I started working at a big health system and needed to wear an id badge every day. My employer required me to wear this above the waist so patients could see who I am. In addition, I was required to swipe my badge at various doorways in order to secure access to different areas of the hospitals and offices I served. All of that makes perfect sense.

I was issued a web lanyard when I first started working at the health system. To make matters worse, it was bright white! Yuck! It totally stood out from my clothing in the wrong way. Since I already designed and created jewelry, it was a quick fix for me to make some beaded lanyards for myself.

It wasn't long before my colleagues were asking me about my lanyards, and I starting making lanyards for some of them. At that point I began marketing them here in my Etsy shop. I was already selling my jewelry here, but the beaded lanyards were a hit, and I started specializing in lanyards. Later I started making decorative badge reels and then magnetic decorative badge reels.

These beaded lanyards and badge reels have been very popular with those of you who work in a position or at an organization that requires you to wear an identification badge while you are at work. These make wonderful gifts for nurses, teachers, students, and office staff.

Frequently asked questions
Can I return an item if I don't like it or if it breaks?

Yes, you may return an item that you do not like for either a refund or exchange for a different item. I do ask that you contact me to let me know you are returning it. It must let me know that you are returning it within 14 days of receiving it and it must be delivered to me within 30 days after that.

I stand behind my work and guarantee my handcrafted jewelry for at least one year of normal use. Occasionally a piece may break. If that should happen, please let me know. I will try to repair it if it has been less than one year since your purchase. Please contact me to let me know what happened, and to see if I can repair it.

How do I decide the best length of a lanyard for me?

I have sold many fashion lanyards in my shop over the last eight years. Most of my orders are for 36" lanyards. I provide choices to my customers of 32", 34" and 36" lanyards. These measurements are all the way around the strand of beads or chain plus the drop of the lanyard focal beads and clasp.
To decide which length you need, measure with a tape measure from the middle of the back of your neck to just below the breast in the middle of your body. Then double that number. For me that length is 17", and I am 5'6" tall. That means I should wear a 34" lanyard.

Do you have a newsletter that will keep me up to date on new items and sales?

I do publish a newsletter. You may sign up to receive it by going to When you sign up you will receive a coupon code to receive 15% off of your order.

What are the differences among the different styles offered on the back of a badge reel?

1. Belt Clip Style - This is the traditional style of backing on most badge reels. The metal clip slides onto your garment into a pocket or the collar.

2. Swivel Clip Style - This backing is an alligator clip that swivels in any direction. These clip onto your garment just about anywhere you would like. This type of badge reel is very secure.

3. Magnetic style - The back of the badge reel has a strong neodymium magnet attached to it and there is another separate magnetic badge attachment that goes behind the clothing under the badge reel.

These are very strong and will hold multiple id cards and keys.
