Many items were fashioned from the tortoise shell and the use became outlawed in the 1970's to protect this species of reptile from endangerment. The tortoise shell could be manipulated to make items such as hair clips, guitar picks and eyewear. The tortoise shell eyeglasses became popular in the 1900's first made famous by comedian Harold Lloyd. This eccentric thick dark round eyeglass was a diversion from the classic metal eyeglasses mostly fashioned in this time period. The time had come for change this was the revival needed for eyeglasses, they were becoming a fashionable and sought after statement.
