Eye Jewelry......

 I remember when I was a sophomore in H.S."92, I wore what they called back then "M.C. Hammer glasses", they were Gazelle glasses, we called them M.C. hammer because he was wearing them at that time, but anyway I wore the knock offs because they were expensive. I really loved those glasses, mine were a square gold frame, that was one piece of accessory that I could not live without...when I had those on, you couldn't tell me nothin', they were like jewelry for my eyes...

      In reminiscing, I thought of these cute little specs, they came out really cute so I had to share.
        I used round nose pliers, a regular pen, finger nail clipper or scissors to cut wire, glass beads and .25 gauge wire - all of these things are found @ Walmart in the craft section. I cut 5-5 1/2" of wire, at 1-1 1/2" I placed the pen and wrapped the wire all the way around(see first photo), doing it this way closed the circle and stopped the beads. I then put 3 glass beads on the longest end of the wire, to the circle, next, at the end of the 3rd bead, I wrapped the wire around the pen again making sure I wrapped both sides the same (see photos 2&3). Now with the pliers I turn the ends in facing me or away from the circle. They look cute just simple like that(photo 4), but a few more beads on the arms and loop the ends so the beads stay, now they are super cute!!!!

For all projects, parental guidance is strongly suggested for children under 12. Most of my projects, I use sharp or pointed tools, so they can be dangerous if not use properly.
I am not a professional, I am self taught so I the things I show are what works well for me, please feel free to ask questions or comment. Thanks for viewing my blog
