Topics: ID Chain and Lanyard Instructions

Q.
I am looking for directions for making a bead chain for putting an ID picture on. Kind of like the one for your glasses.

String your beaded design on 0.024-inch or 0.019-inch 49-strand Accu-Flex® beading wire then attach each end of the beading wire to a swivel clip or other finding that is suited to your picture ID, using crimp beads or crimp tubes. Consider using Accu-Guards™ wire protectors on the ends of the Accu-Flex beading wire as they add a buffer between the wire and the clip (to help with the wear and tear lanyards endure) as well as offer a professional finish to your design.

An alternative to crimp beads and crimp tubes is a newer finding called Screw-Tite Crimps™. Screw-Tite Crimps not only secure your Accu-Flex beading wire to your clasp, they also allow you to change your clasp out for a different one, should you want a different look.
