The design aesthetic is classic, timeless design, but with a modern edgy flair. Very sexy and sleek. The main sunglass types we will pursue are a medium sized aviator, and a somewhat chunkier clubbing style glass with a single wrap-around lense. Please feel free to play with different lense colors and shapes! We want this to be fun and just generate a lot of imagination. The materials being used will generate a large amount of attention so the over all design doesnt have to be extravagant, though that is acceptable as well!

We will be using:
1. Damascus steel
2. Stabilized Box elder burl
3. Sterling Silver
4. Carbon Fiber
5. Stabilized Apple/Tiger Coral
6. Streaked Buffalo Horn
7. Diamonds
8. Reconstituted/Stabilized:
-Lapis Lazuli Gemstone
-Mother of Pearl
-White turqouise Gemstone
-Malachite Gemstone
-Rhodonite Gemstone
-Chrysocolla Gemstone
-Dark/Light Turquoise Gemstone
-Black Onyx Gemstone
-Jasper Gemstone Composites

All these components are either made of organic compounds, or have a processed character that is unique and not duplicatable to a perfect degree. We are very interested in the many different interesting combinations of colors, textures, in-lays, and designs that are possible. I would love to see the club-style design with lense frames covered in red, white, black or green suede. We believe that every aspect of our product is a work of art and attention to detail is huge. We welcome interesting and embellished (yet tasteful) innovations to the connecting pieces from stem to lense frame. We wil be etching a serial number into the temples (stems) of each pair. Scrimshaw may be used in the application of our name/logo. Though our company name officially is Crimson Optics, the name appearing on our glasses will be just Crimson.








Update 30-May-11 GMT
we are trying to make sunglasses that feel a little more substantial than a normal pair of sunglasses. The materials are very dense and wonderfully durable if correctly treated so we are taking advantage of liberal use of the materials while keeping them still realistically wearable.
