Something Special // Fawn's Turquoise Clubmasters

This season, we're doing something extra special with our collection. Doug is using a very special collection of Turquoise to create a mosaic of sorts to the fronts of our classic clubmasters. Our friend Sid, a jewelry maker in Tucson, gave us a mason jar full of turquoise from a shop he had in the 1970s with his wife, Fawn. His beautiful wife passed away about 2 years ago, and in her memory, we named these sunglasses "Fawn's Turquoise Clubmasters."

They are a bit more rustic and handmade looking than our veneer glasses, but they have so much character and life in them, we are in love. It has been such a treat to introduce so many new styles and creations for this season, I have a feeling we won't stop creating new styles as the season goes on.

We will definitely be able to make several of these, but supplies are limited! We would love to know what you think!

xo,
Beca & Doug

PS, here is a photo of Sid and Doug from our last visit to Tucson. I know I've shared it before, but here it is again.

    1. Sid is such a dear friend to us, that we couldn't think of a sweeter way to honor his lovely wife.
