I have made this pretty and practical glasses chain using vintage pearl beads in a lovely silver colour that I sourced from old warehouse stock. These lovely silver beads were made in Japan in the 1950s-60s and have a slightly dimpled texture. I have combined them with crystal glass beads for sparkle and lengths of new silver plated chain.
The chain measures approximately 70 cm in length.
I have shown them with some of my own glasses so that you can see how they might look with yours.
Sustainably made in my Melbourne workshop, this glasses chain contains vintage 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.
