This is your opportunity to own a magical piece of Viveka Gren’s flamboyant creative universe.

About the Sweet Petrichor sunglasses:

The seed of inspiration for this piece is a vintage enamel snail brooch which I purchased in a tiny charity shop on the Swedish west coast back in 2018. I’ve had it in my treasure box, not sure what I wanted to do with it, until one rainy day in June when it suddenly dawned upon me. The snail needed a habitat. A blue field of flowers, filled with the sweet smell of the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather. A sweet petrichor.

 

The Sweet Petrichor is created with both repurposed materials (15%) and hand made elements such as the flowers, all of which are made one by one in order to make the piece harmonize and reach it full potential of eyecatching yet tranquil beauty.

 

Size:
Universal adult size

Weight:
ca 70 gr

Colours:
Golden, semi transparent mirror lenses with elements in silver, gold, white, multiple shades of blue and accents of yellow and pale orange.

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

Quality and technical info:
All sunglasses are created on CE marked bases with UV filter.

This piece is based on a category 3, UV 400.

The Sweet Petrichor is somewhat heavier than a regular pair of sunglasses, however, they are still comfortable to wear due to adaptations made such as broader silicone nose pads. Even if the adornments do not hinder the vision, I do not recommend that you drive a car while wearing these beauties.


The Sweet Petrichor comes with a removable neck chain, which helps you not to displace your new all time favorite sunnies. The neck chain also let you wear these sunglasses on your chest, like a necklace. Ain’t that sweet?


Ecological footprint:

Created with 15% repurposed materials (the snail is from a brooch and all drop shaped crystals and some crystals are pieces of deconstructed necklaces)

Each element of my pieces is either hand made or originates from a vintage piece of jewelry. The process of creating the signature flowers takes several days since each layer of the flower is adapted and painted individually. Before being adorned and assambled into a flower. When a piece is completed, I usually ask my mother to try them on. It gives me a good idea if I feel it is truly done, or if I need to cgange or add anything. Aslo, she looks Amazing in all of my sunnies and her reaction when wearing them is the perfect indicator of how fabulous they make you feel.
