I designed this 27 inch (68.6 cm) reading glasses chain with a collection of vintage beads. Starting with a base of spring green seed beads traded in Morocco, I sprinkled in some striped green, white and mauve African trade beads, purple frosted glass, vintage brown glass, and some vintage splatter painted pink and purple resin beads to create an eyeglass holder reminiscent of vibrant spring flowers popping up in the grass.
I've used the highest quality nylon coated braided steel beading wire so that this beaded spectacles chain drapes and bends with your movements. It is strong and secure, comfortable whether you have your eye glasses on or around your neck. All findings are sterling silver.
This beaded glasses chain is one of a kind, a perfect gift for any librarian or book lover, or for yourself.
The rubbery clear plastic bands close around your glasses by gently moving the coiled silver tone wire so that the band tightens around the glasses arm as in Photo 3. These work wonderfully for light to medium weight glasses. If you have a heavy pair of glasses, you can add a rubber washer (found in eyeglass repair kits) behind the closed clear plastic bands to secure the glasses chain to your specs.
