stuart haygarth : twice a spectacle

I was amazed when I saw these chandeliers by UK-based designer, Stuart Haygarth. These gorgeous fixtures are made of upcycled old prescription eyeglasses. This large one (called Spectacle) directly below is made from over a thousand pairs. For someone who has worn and accumulated numerous pairs starting at age of thirteen, I really appreciate the history that must be behind each pair used to create this. They are stunning.
