cant you use a clear jewel and stick some picture of the eye on the back which light from behind could make glow.

I remember someone here made a lion king for his kid that looked real good.

Get a high quality photo printer, put some transparencies in there (used for overhead projectors, ect) and print out the HIGHEST quality pic of Saurons eye possible.. cut it to fit under your jewel, get a clear jewel and then just experiment with either amber,red or white leds.

I think you should have one peice of plexi that has all tha parts you want lit up red on it, and another with tha parts that you want orange one it. Then light up each one with it's own set of LEDs with tha red one being on tha bottom. Be kinda tedious though

If they can actually etch it exactly like that, it would be something else. Nice Lion King jewel by the way wink.gif
