Making eyeglasse frames is a culmination of all that I have learned. The tools I was taught in college to create art (torches, hammers, saws and printing presses) are used in a very precise way as eyeglass parts have to fit so they really work and not just look good.

I can add to those the tools the materials that my optician introduced me to – zyl, frame warmers, staking and micro tools. And of course, all those computer skills I use for drawing patternsthe same one I was taught while working at TIME. Using the computer helps me create and make the exacting & symmetrical masters that I use.

Most of all, I have developed my imagination to birth designs which are a little different yet but still suitable for everyone. I dont use the obvious like rhinestones or giant wings to garner attention. I use simplicity instead which appeals to both men and women and still are dissimilar from the norm.

When someone wears my glasses they get noticed, in a good way. Try on a pair and you will “see.”
