Caribbean Blue Lampwork Eyeglasses Leash

Pretty pink and white peony petals float in a sea of Caribbean aqua blue in a beaded eyeglass holder made of a collection of lampwork beads on a beaded white strand with silver accents.

I love these beads and I absolutely adore working with them. These in particular with their soft but vibrant color really stand out for me and they make this eyeglass leash one of my very favorites that I've made thus far.

If you're like me, finding your reading glasses when you need them can often be a timely activity.
In fact, my mother is even more notorious than I for losing her glasses and was the reason I started making these eyeglass lanyards in the first place!

You can solve that problem by wearing an eyeglass chain that hooks to the arms of your glasses and lets them dangle securely (and in this case, decoratively!) around your neck.

Each strand I make is made with smooth beads at the nape for the comfort of the wearer and decorative beads at the ends to show off a sense of style while keeping eyeglasses easily in reach.

This piece is 29.5" from tip to tip - 75 cm in length.
