This is a solid, quality piece- not to mention, adorable! I've seen similar eyeglass holders before but unlike the mass produced kind I've seen, it's obvious this one is handmade with care. Love it!

I just received my eye glass holders and I couldn't be happier with them!!! They were a custom order but still took under a week to arrive! Beautifully made, excellent quality and fast delivery!

About

Functional and dysfunctional art, handmade daily

So, what happens is this -
I make these sculptures. I make 'em out of clay or wood or hard coated styrofoam. I take great pains to get the originals right - and then,
Why then I make molds. Silicone rubber molds.
I cast duplicates from these molds out of urethane resin.
Lovely, very durable material.
And in most cases I polish 'em and in some cases I paint 'em.
In every case there are
procedures
that need to be performed.
These I do.
And I make little changes, tweaks, here and there, so that over time, the castings become more refined and closer to
perfect.
Closer.
I do all of this by hand, by myself.
For you, peaches.
