Silver Specs

For those who may want to break free of the Moscot and Wayfarer pack for seeing glasses (I don't know who these people would be, but go with me), kiwi artist Brian Adam can craft you custom frames in sterling sliver. If you're in the mood for new sunny specs, these aviators based on a 1930s design are quite divine!

Hollister, I swear I saw a chandelier made of old specs on the the MAD museum site (Second Lives exhibit) this morning, but I can't find it in this show online anymore:

Oh...but the rest looks amazing, too! (And the jewelry...). Thanks, Caroline!
