Matia Guardabascio is a proud citizen of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in both English and French Literature. As the daughter of a musician and a school teacher, Matia grew up in a musical household with parents who made a concerted effort to instill in her the value and importance of the arts. She is a music enthusiast, an avid reader, a writer of prose and poetry, a traveler, and an enthusiastic imbiber of red wine. The piano is her favorite instrument, followed by the drums, and she loves Impressionist artwork, especially because she doesn’t need to wear her glasses to see what’s going on. That’s right, the glasses are not for show. She wears tri-focals because she reads too much, or as her good friends might say, she actually 80-years-old.
Shwood, an Oregon-based company specializing in handmade eye wear made from sustainable materials, wants to introduce a new friend by the name of Eugene. The Eugene is the latest frame style from Shwood and boasts a sleek silhouette and that classic 1960’s bold look. Each frame is made by hand and is available in both Walnut and Dark Walnut wood. The Eugene is available with either a Grey Carl Zeiss or green G15 polarized lens (which provide UV protection). G15 lenses were originally developed for US Air Force pilots.
