    I love the look of this and the design so you can change your lanyard to match your outfit/mood! I used to work at a Navy base and had to wear one of these every day- I would’ve loved a stylish one like this! Hmmm, maybe I could make some for my girls’ teachers for end-of-year gifts!

    These would sell like hotcakes at my office – I am a telecommuter, but the folks who work in the office would snatch this up in a hot minute!!! Fantastic work!

    I really like this necklace. First, I like the beads you chose, and the clasp idea is very good idea. I also like the way you’ve used the chain to add space and texture. Fabulous.
