Stuart Haygarth has sent us a new photo of Optical, a chandelier made of lenses from unwanted prescription spectacles.

The 1.5m diameter chandelier, which contains 3,000 lenses, was premiered at the Trash Luxe exhibition at Liberty in London last month.

Haygarth gets the lenses from from a charity that ships used spectacles to the developing world.
