Remember my earlier post on how to make eyeglass holders? It covered two types of eyeglass holders. I myself prefer the necklace type as it is quick and easy to just pop my reading glasses off and on. I pretty much have just the same chain on the glasses all the time. But do check out reader Margaret Schindel's tutorial on how to make a convertible eyeglass holder.
It is a very clever tip on how to make any number of necklaces into eyeglass holders simply by adding clasps to both ends of the necklace. So the clasps just attach to jump rings on the silicone eyeglass holders. When you want to wear the necklace by itself, just attach the clasps to an extra jump ring.
Her tutorial gives the step-by-step instructions on how to use clamshells to finish the ends. Great howto especially for beginners.
