Neck lanyards do not require a clasp as they are quite long and can slip over your head.
If the safety requirements are that your lanyard must be able to come apart easily than add a magnetic clasp to the design, this will prevent breakage and will not choke the wearer.
Depending on the purpose of your individual lanyard adding a hook or clip for attaching the badge, or key ring will work well.
A lanyard will be worn most working days so has a much harder life than a necklace. Consider the weight and types of beads required. Some beads are prone to chip easily and other not very durable so take this into consideration when selecting your beads.
Seed beads and bugle beads are fantastic for beaded lanyards especially around the neck section where you are looking for comfort. Eye glass lanyards are a great way to keep track of your spectacles and dress them up a little. They are basic beading for beginners, they have adjustable eyeglass chain ends added supporting the glasses around your neck.
They make a beautiful gift and the price of them varies in accordance with the materials and beads used and just how fancy you choose to make them. Matching the beads to a company’s colors will make it a very attractive piece of jewelry.
