You may not know this (or even care to know this), but I do in fact wear glasses. I'm horribly short sighted, and it's definitely getting worse. For the past year or so, I've been in massive denile about my apalling eyesight, insisting that I only need to wear my glasses at the cinema or when looking at presentations.
I think it's because glasses are annoying to carry around, and most of the time I forget them. This has lead to a new idea for Swell Vintage - glasses chains! Although glasses chains are normally associated with librarians and - let's be honest - the elderly, I don't think they have to be mumsy or cheap looking as they so often are.
This is my prototype! It's made with vintage chain and adorned with freshwater pearls. I'm planning on doing a whole range, using different vintage chains to create one-of-a-kind designs.
So what do you think? Do you think it's a bit too old lady-esque, or is it something you'd considering wearing? I'd love to know what you think, so please let me know - all feedback is welcome, good and bad!
In other news, I was recently interviewed by the wonderful people at DEER BRAINS. If you fancy a read, hop over to their brilliant blog.
That's all for now, folks!
