Shwood is a luxe eyewear retailer that puts together its frames using sustainable materials and the 'Sea' collection debuting this summer features sunglasses made using tiny crustaceans. The glasses feature real seashells integrated into the design to channel an element of the ocean and beach culture that is so prevalent and popular during the summer season.

The collection includes colorful frames in shades inspired by the ocean such as aquamarine, sea foam and teal. The frames are then decorated along the top with sea shells that are fused onto the frames using resin casting to keep the crustaceans in place. While the beach embellishments are subtle, they add en element of artistry to the sunglasses that is quintessentially summer.
