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!
Lapis lazuli rondelles, red bamboo coral rounds, and turquoise howlite tubes in a design very reminiscent of ancient Egyptian jewelry. $27
Two connectors featuring an abstract variation on the Celtic Shield knot with unakite and bloodstone. $25
Sterling silver-plated diamond knot beads with fancy jasper and bloodstone. $24
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
A fun protection against the Evil Eye, featuring Nazar-style eye beads and multicolored glass seed beads. $18
