A fun project for summer is to make a pair of sunglasses your own with beads and other jewelry-making components! This pair features fun and easy wire wraps coiled around the frames. Becky also added Czech glass laser-etched dagger beads for a fun feathered texture. These glasses are perfect for festivals or just a day out in the sun.
