One of the most important summer essentials in any wardrobe is a pair of decent sunglasses. This method is a perfect, incredibly simple way to spruce up a pair of old glasses, creating an intricate, beautiful look from what are in reality just a pair of cheap plastic shades.

For this project, you will need:

  • A pair of sunglasses
  • Some metal jewellery findings
  • Strong glue (I used 2 part epoxy glue)

Step 1: Cut the Jewellery Findings

Cut your jewellery findings to fit the lenses of your glasses. I also cut pieces to fit on the sides of the frames for extra decoration.

<p>This is great! I love it so much I added it to my <a rel="nofollow">Party Time ala 70's</a> page of my Disco-ball pumpkin. Thanks! </p>
<p>stylin'!! you're quite artistic :D</p>
<p>They look grogeous, definitely a step up from the original. Well done, and thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>Thank you! :)</p>
I'd buy some of these from you!
<p>I'm flattered, but they're so, so simple to make! Rather give your own a go! :)</p>
This looks excellent. If you're going to wear these while driving, you might focus on embellishing the outer borders of the lenses.
