How I Made These Eyeglasses


#1

I have just finished a quite complicated eyeglass frame and want to
show some of the main processes I used in making them.

Custom Frame no 402 sterling silver, PX5000 lenses, titanium, leather
I hope it will illustrate this particular way that I make frames.

Comments welcome

Brian I enjoyed looking at your site. I wanted very badly to come to
your workshop (in Maine, I think?) this past season, but, sadly,
could not. Will you be doing any workshops in the US in the future,
that you know about? So you ever do all-titanium frames?

It was a good class. Pictures of the wonderful and functioning
eyeglasses that some of the students at Metalwerx, Massachusetts made
are at

Not that I know about, sadly, at the moment.

Once. I made some titanium louvre shades in about 1985. However I’m
more attracted to silver- and gold-based alloys.

Thanks for the comments, many off-list. Some have asked about where
to buy optical parts. I have my own New Zealand supplier of Italian
and German parts. Who knows of Centrostyle and OBE agents in other
countries?
