THANK YOU FOR THE FESTIVE LANYARD ! BEST, GAIL
I love using small faceted glass/crystal (3 & 4mm) beads, seed beads, and tiny bead caps for my work. Many of my pieces use a lot of metal beads, caps and spacers to give them a richer look. I also like the look of semi-precious gemstones like amethyst, garnet and hematite although they often create a piece to heavy for use as eyeglass lanyards.
At the present time I use mostly gold plated findings and beads. The price of gold filled or 10/14k gold findings would be prohibitive. I've had pieces that I made over a year ago and wear often and they still look very nice. Keeping the piece in a dry place when you're done wearing it and using anti-tarnish strips do help reduce tarnish.
Each piece is sturdy. Instead of simple tube or bead crimps, for the majority of my lanyard necklaces I use a "Scrimp", which has a tiny screw to lock the beading wire tightly, but also allows for easy re-stringing. The beading wire is threaded through a wire guardian (also called a thimble in some places) where it connects with the lobster clasps to eliminate fraying. I use a swivel lobster clasp to reduce twisting.
Accepted payment methods
The items will be carefully packed and padded with the item enclosed in a nice pouch and all the accessories needed for a fully convertible necklace lanyard - large lobster claw attached to a clear plastic connector loop for a badge and two eyeglass loops.
If this is a gift item, I can ship to you in a gift box instead of a pouch. Please note if you want a box in the "message to seller". I will not "drop ship" to the gift recipient, however, only to the buyer.
Please use the "message to seller" to advise me of any special requests regarding shipping. I'll do my best to accommodate them.
Refunds and Exchanges
Agreed upon returns need to be sent in well padded packaging to keep the item safe if you want to exchange or have it repaired. In every instance of returns, you will need to insure it for the full sales price; should the item not arrive safely to me, without insurance I cannot repair, exchange or refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Eyeglass lanyards - you can choose between elastic and metal eyeglass holders (as shown in photographs) or adjustable translucent white rubber ones. Please indicate a preference or the elastic and metal ones will be sent.
