Addicted to Lux Addiction– DIY Haute Couture Samsung Vibrant Cover!

My Lux Addiction DIY– Samsung Vibrant Cover! 

OMG, talk about addictions.  talk about girly– talk about flirty– talk about crafty!  you all know by now, that i get my DIY on pretty frequently.  for a while i hadn’t found a project that made me want to get it poppin’…… until yesterday when my co-worker Veronica bought a new I-Phone 4.  she had this hideous cover for her phone and was complaining that she didn’t want to walk around looking like a man even if her phone was protected enough to kick across the room and still survive unscathed!

she had me check out and look at the phone covers.  i mean WOW.  sooooooo super fab i had to have one.  but you know me.  im inpatient.  i can’t wait and i didn’t want to pay for a cover that i could have 10x’s the fun making. 

so last night i went through my jewelry drawer and picked out the stuff that i dont wear, was starting to discolor, smelled funny [i have a sensitive nose], or all the many broken pieces and laid them out.  sorting through them i found that i changed from the stones i bought earlier that day specially for the project.  \

vintage rose and gold was calling my name….  i could hear it whisper to me from the cabinets and drawers.  i couldn’t help it….. i cut into a necklace from Forever 21  — chopped the chains on another necklace, pulled a couple earrings apart, de-beaded a charm and 45 mins later i had this:

The Cover!
