Glasses Chains!

I don’t personally wear glasses, but everyone else in my family does and so I’ve been inspired to make beaded glasses chains. (And if you’re like me and don’t wear eyeglasses, they also work great on sunglasses!) All feature relatively small, lightweight beads so they won’t cause headaches and are finished with (depending on the design) either black or clear-white rubber grips. And of course–inspired by archaeology and lore!

Focus and Memory II:

Since my first focus and memory chain was put on layaway almost immediately I created a second variation with some different stones, shapes, and patterns, but based on the same inspiration: stones described in gem-lore to help with concentration, focus, stress-relief, and enhancing memory. Carnelian, amethyst, hematite, smoky quartz, and black obsidian. $25

Nazar:
