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 www.luxaddiction.com 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:
Assorted broken jewelry– i had a necklace with chains that were about 20 ins long, a hoop earing with 5 small charms [a bow, a diamond, gold beads, a hanging chain, and small flower], another broken pearl necklace with metal wrapped pearls, and the large peach/pink statement pearl, an arrow head earing on a chain, cream earring with hanging pearls, and one faceted chandelier earing with quartz colored baubles!
[i purchased extra chrystals and assorted things when i was going with an alternate design]
