When I was about 8 years old, I had glasses…well not just any glasses but bifocals. I also had a spectacular set of hair barettes in pink and teal that were in the shape of cat eye type glasses with gold edging. My lovely friends being 8 years old took this opportunity I presented them with and called me 8 eyes, which sounds a lot less damaging than it felt at the time. It should have put me off glasses as accessories for areas other than the eyes, but I think instead it’s given me a bit of an obsession. Over the years I’ve had several pieces of optical jewelry..and now I’ve found a new one–this necklace from Beyond the Valley for 30 quid. And best of all, it’s made of wood, which is good because last I checked pink and teal are so 1991.
