I love the embellished sunglasses trend right now. For a while, I had a floral pair on my mind to make, but when I saw this pair of Chanel sunglasses with a subtle pearl detail, I knew these were ones to try my hand at first. They have a classic elegance in a way that Chanel is known for, while incorporating one of their mainstays, pearls. The interesting thing about the designer pair is that the pearls are actually embedded into the frame, peeking out from the inside so really only the person wearing them can see the hidden pearls within. To get this effect, I used half faux pearls from the scrap-booking section of my local craft store and attached them on the top of some cat-eye sunglasses. (Here is a very cute pair from ASOS too!)
Because the pearl embellishments were sticky on the back, I was able to place a few on the glasses to test out spacing. To stick them on permanently, I dipped the flat side of the pearl onto the E6000 glue and gently placed on the glasses with some tweezers. (My favorite are Tweezerman.)
