The Swarovski eye fancy stone at the center of this pin is a mesmerizing focal everyone will notice. Cheri added touches of bead embroidery around the eye for a look reminiscent of Ancient Egypt's famous Eye of Horus. Use it as a brooch like Cheri did here or make it the pendant of a daring necklace. You can see more ideas featuring fun Swarovski pieces in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
