What a novel idea. I never in a million yeRs would have thought of this. I have a lot of old sunglasses, missing one lens or broken stem. This would really use them up. It's easy and really a cool idea. I am always finding so many great projects at this site. Thank you for yet another one.

I can't tell you how many pairs of sunglasses have gotten crunched in my purse and left me with only one side intact. This is a great way to reuse something I always have a lot of!

I have many pairs from grandkids and adults with one lens broken also. Have you made any of these sunglass pendents yet. How did they turn out?
