OPTION

Use the same techniques to create this pendant, then leave off the teardrop for a simpler look.

1) EYE FRONT. Use tubular peyote and herringbone stitches to bezel the front of the crystal eye:

Rounds 1 and 2: Use 3' of thread to string {2C and 15D} twice, leaving a 12" tail. Pass through the beads again to form a tight circle and pass through the first C strung (Fig. 1, purple thread).
