I know. I know. Everyone wants to see more glasses. I am going to try to put more in the loop. Just stay tuned.
The frames I create are artful, wearable and precise enough to be fitted with prescription lenses by a professional optician. Lynn McKelvey is my optician. She is a licensed optician at Ravine Eye Center (732.974.1400) in Brick, NJ. She can change the lens in almost any frame and certainly any one of my frames.
I have compiled a list of opticians who have either put lenses in our glasses or have been recommended by a customer in all of these states where we do shows: CT, MA, NY, NJ, DE and PA. But know that our readers are ordinary frames in terms of changing lenses—really no big deal. If you want a copy of my list of opticians just email me and ask me for the list.
Making eyeglass frames is a big deal when it is really done by hand. That’s why you don’t see anyone else doing it. Most glasses which are marked handmade are guided by hands but made by machines, mostly computer driven lasers and industrial production machines made in a factory not a studio.
AND….look for my cool magnifying lens pendants in the shapes of actual flowers, like dahlias, magnolias, primroses, camellias and primulas. They hold a 70 mm magnifying lens from my optician so you can see more and better. Wear them as jewelry on a day out or use them in addition to your glasses, when you need a little extra help.
Come visit and know that we have some really cool stuff—worth’seeing.’ And I am working on a new project which I think you will really like as no one is doing anything like it and it is something for us creatives….
Oh, and please don’t try to use my online shop as it is not up to date—the prices are incorrect and I am sold out on many items. I am going to remove the link as soon as I figure out how to do it. Sorry.
