This was my first attempt on making an eyeglass holder.  I just got it finished and I thought I would share the results.

The total length of this piece is 40 inches from end to end.  I hand assembled all of the components you see from the elastic findings to secure the eyeglasses to my custom hand painted recycled beads.

I could have ordered the findings , but I didn’t really want to invest in 100 of them.  I don’t have a lot of people banging down my door looking for custom eyeglass holders (although if I get enough interest, I might just invest).

If I do, I was thinking of using these:

What do you think?

I recycled the beads from an old purse I found at Good Will.  It was like this grass woven purse covered in about 100 oval wood beads in row different sizes.  Given a bit of a facelift with some magenta, blue, and white paint and several clear coats I think they turned out very nice.

I think I am going to figure out how to cap the ends in silver for the next set of beads I make.

If you are interested in ordering a custom design for yourself or someone you know, please send an email to fiberfusion42@hotmail.com

Over all I am happy at how this design turned out and I hope you enjoy what I created..

This would be a good pendant for those of us who jump to conclusions, or jump into angry situations and need to be ‘cooled’ off. This also is a good pendant for those of us who tend to act before thinking things though, or act out of anger. Red, yellow, and orange are all colors who promote action and getting things done quickly. While blue represents intellect, reflection, and calm and white represents peace and innocence.

Have you ever stopped to think about color? Color plays a vital role in our daily lives. Not only does it make a psychological impact on us every day influencing our thoughts and emotions, but in many religious beliefs it plays a role for spiritual development as well.

This pendant reminds me of the primordial cosmos and the creation of life on our planet. In the center of the pendant you have multi-layer flame being quenched and cooled by water, as steam rolls off. Up on the bail there is a representation of the primordial sky, dark blue with flecks of gold stars sprinkled throughout.

I recommend pairing this with a white necklace and accessories to help you calm your emotional outbursts and lead you make peaceful and thoughtful choices.

Yellow and Green Reverse Swirl Recycled Glass by FullGamutWorkshop.

Have you ever stopped to think about color?  Color plays a vital role in our daily lives.  Not only does it make a psychological impact on us every day influencing our thoughts and emotions, but in many religious beliefs it plays a role for spiritual development as well.

The reverse twist in this pendant is a delicate balance symbolizing the aspects of balance and equal force, which can be reflected in the Asian aspects of Yin and Yang.  Light vs. Dark.  Eternal change and balance.

Yellow as a color recharges the spirit and gives us energy for change, while green allows us to grow and develop.  This pendant is good for someone who wants or needs to bring about balanced change and growth into their lives.  I recommend pairing it with the black necklace or accents as black repels negativity, and will help you to let go of those negative thoughts which impede and make you struggle for change in your life.

Handmade Lampwork Strawberry Pendant by FullGamutWorkshop on Etsy.

Purchase a piece of unique collectible handmade glass art you can wear for years to come.  Glass pendant comes with a lifetime guarantee, ready to wear with a twisted cotton cord necklace your color choice of:  white, tan, dark brown, or black.  (If a color is not chosen, one will be picked to match the pendant).
This realistic strawberry pendant is made of recycled glass and is so detailed, the artist even included the appearance of a bruise on the tip of the pendant.

If you like to make your own art, here are some of my ideas on how you can include this in your own work:

  • wedding cake decoration
  • hair component
  • necklace centerpiece
  • accent in a flower arrangement
  • part of a key chain
  • include in a collage
  • use as part of your strawberry shortcake Halloween costume
