I have made this pretty and practical glasses chain using vintage pink pearl beads made in the late 1950s-1960s. I have wire wrapped each bead along with some tiny glass beads repurposed from a stranded necklace. These tiny beads were coated in a matching pink colour, although most of this has now been lost however I love their shabby-chic look. I have joined them with sections of vintage brass chain sourced from old warehouse stock.
The chain measures approximately 70.5 cm in length. Move the wire band on the rubber holders to fit them securely to the arm of your glasses or sunnies.
I have shown them with a pair of my own glasses so that you can see how they might look with yours.
Sustainably made, this glasses chain contains vintage and repurposed materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
Handmade in Australia.
