Waxing Rhapsodic



There’s no denying the recent resurgence of vinyl records both old and new… but… there’s also a master crafter out there artfully creating custom eyewear from recycled vinyl. David Keith (and the process of his artful Spexwax Art-Wear eyewear creations) was extensively featured in the September 2014 issue of 20/20, and the response was intense from our readership. I was personally thrilled when Keith then reached out to me, creating a pair of glasses for me and also gifting me with one of his custom-made eyewear cases crafted from a discarded Jethro Tull LP. We strongly suggest you stroll through the craft of his eyewear creations at spexwax.com.

In a rare but cherished instance, 20/20 lets Spexwax’s David Keith tell his own story. Want to tell him about YOUR interest in securing recycled Vinyl Art-Wear? Give him a buzz at (619) 581-2868. Tell him 20/20 sent you.
