How To: Bling Bling iPhone

When it comes to techie gadgets, I am such a dinosaur. Personally I don't really care abut the latest technology as long as my current ones work. Anyhoo, my phone finally died on me and as result I upgraded myself to an iPhone finally. Well, I must say it is quite convenient to have web surfing capability anywhere anytime. It is a great babysitter for both child and adult alike.
Well, for those who know me, they will also attest to my love for all things bling-bling. After looking around online for Swarovski iPhone cover, I decided to make my own because I didn't feel like paying $170 to $230 for a gradient style like the one I made above. All in all, I love it. It took almost 1000 Swarovski crystals and lots and lots of patience. I think this one took about 3+ hours because I had to walk away when I find myself getting impatient. This would be really bad then because material cost is quite high. Also work in small sections and do plan out design in advance. I will be making more in the near future and considering this is a first try, I am pretty happy. I have already determine what will make this even more bling and better. Stay tune!
