First Friday is just around the corner, so make sure to mark your calendars for the launch of designer Emily Baker of Sword+Fern and local eyewear designer Amy Sacks event at the Sword+Fern shop. Baker and Sacks collaborated on a newly designed collection of eyeglass chains that merge together their signature styles. Think chunky vintage chains, gemstones, leather, and recycled car parts incorporated with Amy Sacks vivid hand polished Italian acetate frames. A portion of the proceeds from the First Friday event will also benefit The Pixie Project animal rescue organization. The new collection of eyeglass chains as well as a selection of Amy Sacks eyeglasses will be unveiled next Friday from 6-10 pm at 811 East Burnside. It makes me want to get my geek chic on, because there’s just something about glasses that make you feel sexy and smarter!
