Our Story

Tara Shen & Efrat Rassin


RASSIN & SHEN has reinvented the classic eyewear accessories. Their beautiful range of handcrafted chains are as functional as they are fashionable, allowing you to play with your look while holding your eyewear close.

Their Original D Necklace is composed of bold hoops, joining at the signature ‘D’ shape, creating a chic necklace that clasps your glasses.  Or choose a Smiley Chain, the contemporary take on the glasses chain, which grips the temple of your glasses and can be worn in three ways.

These modern accessories are easy to wear and perfect for those seeking style with a little fun. From versatile variations on classic tortoiseshell to trendy seasonal shades, the range of designs and finishes complement the latest trends.

Strong and ultra-lightweight, RASSIN & SHEN chains are produced using the highest quality cellulose acetate, sourced from the world-renowned Mazzucchelli factory in France; then hand-crafted by a family run business in Poland.

RASSIN & SHEN was co-founded by Efrat Rassin & Tara Shen in 2015, combining their considerable experience in the eyewear and fashion industries to create revolutionary products that are both functional and beautiful. Their business idea won them the Sirius Programme Award for Great Ideas, funded by UK Trade & Investment.
