Love the sparkley pupils!!

The photo of the one in your hand is kind of creepy. Looks like you hand sprouted an all seeing eye.

Truly intriquing work there Marcel. Now a question, did you take that eye in your hand,the one that is round like a marble, and incorporate it somehow by adding glass to the sides and then of course the lids & bail, to make the pendant? or did you make the pendant in one step? Very nice,indeed. I make some eye pendants, sort of an "eye of Rah" type of eye, & we always tell people at shows that they should buy it for someone they want to keep an eye on. lol . Well....it was funny the first 100 times we said it.

I've been making a few of these, using Christian's method plus some millie cane I made myself. They're fun, but I'm searching for a good green/hazel/brown to use and they never seem to come out as well as the blue. Any suggestions?

it is all by experimenting and discovering.

Got some work to do on my eyelids but I like the colors I got out of this one. I will try to get better pics tomorrow when the sun is out.
