Pattern Description:

I looked for a solution to an everyday problem I had - losing my reading glasses!!!!
I found optical magnifying glasses which I could use to look at small objects like seats number on tickets in the cinema, ingredients on products tickets etc.

Then, how I can have it on me without losing it like I do with my reading glasses? somply, wrap it with beadwork.
The idea became so popular many bought it and others asked for tutorial.
It took very long time to complete this tutorial almost 4 months!!!
In this tutorial you will find instructions to wrap round pendant, how to customize the pattern - increase or decrease the circumference, 3 different models, hanger and tassel.
Enjoy you beadwork and your new jewelry,
