These are the ramblings of my new discoveries about food, crafts, fashion and nonsense.

From start to finish all in one day! It's so beautiful!! I think there's some holes but they'll hafta wait to be filled once all the glue dries this time around.
I'm very proud of it tho!
I used Swarovski elements, a silver chain necklace cut into pieces, ribbons, scrap booking adhesive pearls in various sizes and Paul my special octopus charm. He likes his new home. ^^
I didn't end up using the pink pearls or the kwik seal caulking. The pink pearls didn't quite fit with what I wanted to do. And the kwik seal ended up needed heavy ventilation, gloves, goggles... too many safety features for my wanting not to go out in a ridiculously blustry and snow-ish day. Ah Winter. Or rather "winter" as this year seems to be - but more on that later. I ended up using weldbond glue - hopefully it will hold. From what it advertises it should. Fingers crossed!

  1. Oh my goodness! So lovely!! I adore how you made the rhinestone bow on the back (and Paul is cute too ^^)

    And I understand about "winter"... there's been days lately where it's t-shirt and mini type weather here xD;

    1. Thank you! I'm so proud of it. I put it on my phone today (after the 24hr drying time) and it is so much cooler with the black phone underneath it.
      Winter is insane here, we've had above 0 celcius for two weeks now and it's plunged way below it. There were people in tank tops yesterday and now we're bundled to the neck it's horrid. XD

  2. Your phone case is very pretty! Love what you did to it!
    Thank you so much for visiting me!
    Great minds think alike! I was working on transforming those pain au chocolat into earrings. Here they are
