Eye Keep – Casual Cord- Multi-Colour
We are a small Irish family business creating luxury handcrafted accessories that tell a story. All our products are handmade in our studios in Dublin using the finest quality materials.
Our handmade eyeglass holders known as Eye Keeps address the problem of where to keep your glasses when not on your face. The Eye Keep is a piece of functional jewellery worn around the neck like a necklace with a ring for your glasses to sit safely through so that they are close to hand at all times. In reality, it is a necklace for eyewear.
The Eye Keep is ideal for anyone who wears reading or occupational glasses and perfect for your sunglasses. Our Eye Keeps come in everyday casual wear where we have cord eyeglass holders, to high-end jewellery pieces to include beaded eyeglass holders and pearl eyeglass holders, so there is one to suit all occasions. They come in a wide range of colours too. The Eye Keep comes with a velvet pouch.
We love and appreciate the story behind each of our products and want to share that with you, so, we have taken the time to select the right materials to make each one of our Eye Keeps so that you can experience today, that small piece of history that existed long ago.
Our Casual Cord Eye Keeps from our everyday wear range are made from nylon cord that consists of a core of threads in a woven nylon jacket. The finding and ring are made from stainless steel or brass and are fitted with a cord lock so they are completely adjustable and will fit to size.
A little piece of history.. The nylon cord is a very strong cord that was used by American paratroopers during the Second World War. After a parachute landing the cord of the parachute would be cut from the parachute and used for all kinds of applications.
This particular nylon cord was also used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
