As a part time wearer of glasses, (can't see a thing close up!), I've long been frustrated with the ugly selection of eyeglass chains - especially those hideous little black thingys at the ends. Necessity being what it is I had to take matters into my own hands. The result has been so much fun! The added bonus of this eyeglass chain is that if you position it in the right place, it looks like you have earrings on!!
