The Glare! Beware! Eyeglass Holder

About this design:

I found the metal "donut" in a junk drawer. I don't know what it's used for and where I got it! I thought it would make a good eye-glass holder!


Crystals; garnet chips; re-cycled seed and silver beads; metal donut

    This is SO SO practical. I’m always wearing my glasses on my head and stretching out the frames.
    I bet you could get some BIG washers and patina paint them for something fun and funky. :)

    Arrrggggg I commented from work and I don’t see it here. darn firewall!!! This is such a cool idea!! I think everyone is right–market them at Susie’s farmers’ market where there are more retirees who might have more need for this sort of thing to hold their cheaters. I know my hubby could use this! :)
