Gallery 1, Heliotrope drop set
I bought three of these pendants some time ago and recentlymade one up for my friend Lea. This one's for me, along with the teardrop earrings. It took about 100 delicas to circle the teardrop pendant for the first row and 40 for each of the 18mm teardrop cabs for the earrings. I used 14 mm cabs for the tops of the earrings (30 delicas around) and an 18 mm one for the top of the pendant (44 delicas around). The rest is peyote with embellishing stitches similar to those in Laura McCabe's crystal book. I actually used the instructions I got from a class by Daeng Weaver, although she didn't show us how to do the teardrops per se.
