Give your sunnies some love with a good dose of sparkle – courtesy a DIY sunglasses chain! Mix colors, textures and bead styles to create everything from a classically glam look to a bright boho statement.

I created this easily with eyepins and beads/connectors, then attached those to a bit of chain – add sunglasses holders on each end to finish the strand.

To get the full tutorial along with step-by-step photos, head on over to my CraftPaperScissors tutorial here – this is a great beginner tutorial!

Create one or many – to match every outfit, perhaps? Or if when you’re reading a newspaper you’re struggling to see it properly and need reading glasses, you can liven up the look with a chain. I love the functionality of these, especially because I always drop my sunnies (which has been the death of a few of them, cracked lenses and arms).

Have fun crafting!
