Meet the Twilight Garden of Maeve sunglasses, a showpiece from the Gardens of Maeve collection. Maeve is a female name of Irish origin meaning "she who intoxicates". It appears in Irish mythology in two forms, one as the powerful Queen of Connacht, the other as the queen of the fairies.

I begun creating this piece when I visited a dear friend of mine who also happens to be a brilliant horror fiction author. We spent a few wonderful days taking long walks in the woods and midnight swims in a nearby lake under the light Scandinavian night sky. Those hours of wild nature and a night spent watching the brilliant but uncanningly terrifying horror movie Midsommar @midsommarmovie by director Ari Aster was the seed that has now grown into this collection.

The details are gorgeous and you will find more the longer you look at them. You will find a deer, snakes, dangling skulls and a dark fairy among the flowers.

Size: Universal adult size

Colours & technical info: Matte black with oily rainbow coloured lenses with black and blue Swarovski rhinestones. The hand made metal flowers are painted in shades to mirror the dark, oily colours of the lenses.

All my sunglasses are created on CE marked bases with UV filter. This piece is based on a category 4, UV 400.

Please note that due to the settings of your phone or computer, the colours of the pictures might vary slightly.

Care: The Twilight Garden of Maeve sunglasses are an art object, and should be treated as such. Take care when handling. Avoid anything that can scratch the lenses, like laying them on a table with the lenses down towards the surface. To protect the mechanism of the sunglasses, one should never wear a pair of glasses on the head, like a headband. It will with time damage the mechanism.

Can be wiped with glasses cleaning pads, or a damp, luke warm cloth. 

Due to the size they do not fit in a regular sunglasses case, but you will receive an organza dust bag and storage box for when they are not used.
