Mica Monocle

This piece was born slowly. I have always gravitated toward the technical, an extra screw, a hinge, a pressure fit… The mica monocle grew from the lens out. The lens is pressure fitted in slotted wire and held together by a hidden hand tapped screw that is the handle meeting the lens rod. The cradle for the hand piece catches the lens with a click. If only I could be invited to Anne Lister’s midwinter ball so I could wear this…
