I have a number of pairs of reading glasses. Most of the time I just grab the pair with the cord that keep them around my neck. I wear cords out… they get dirty/sweaty and I toss them away or the little plastic thingy breaks. Some are way to short, some are too long. Some hurt my neck, some got tangled in my hair. Some held my glasses at a perfect length to catch pieces of food …hard to see anything when one lens has lettuce and dressing on it. Not to mention that you feel stupid when you raise them up to read something and everyone notices the lettuce.
One day I was shopping and saw a perfect cord. Then I got an idea…I could make my own afterall I had many of the supplies. I attempted to make one during the Craft Retreat back in September…I was not strong enough with my bum hand to crimp the beads…besides that my first attempt was way to heavy..it was real pretty but too heavy.
Yesterday I tore it apart and recreated it.
I bought the one in front, it was the inspiration.
I made the tourquoise one and I am working on another in the background, that one is shades of blue.
If you wear reading glasses how do you keep track of them? If you wear them with a cord around your neck when they are not in use…leave me a comment …I may make you one.
