Over a glass of wine in December 2007, a couple of friends discussed the fulfilment of establishing a business together. As teachers, the idea for beadID was inspired by the frustration of having to wear unattractive fabric lanyards to carry school ID passes, classroom keys, whistles and USBs. These lanyards were always in fabulously horrible colours and usually covered in corporate advertising. This was the opportunity.
With this inspiration fuelling long days, they set about designing and creating beautiful beaded lanyards. Before long hundreds of beadIDs had been hand-made and countless designs eliminated.
On 1st January, 2009 beadID launched 16 designs in its first range.
Over the years since, beadID has grown and created more designs, added accessories and diversified in products.
In 2013, the new owner, also a teacher, is just as passionate as the original creators.
We trust you'll fall in love with beadID as much as we did.
