“Blinged”

When I got my new phone, I really enjoyed the way it looked. I knew I needed a case but I hated most cases they were either too  boring or too childish for a woman.

….So what should a woman do???

Well if she is crafty enough she makes her own!!

I enjoy taking an item (anything) and turning it into something beautiful. A ball of yarn into a scarf or sweater, fabric into a dress or purse, food products into a beautiful and healthy meal, and now a plain plastic phone case into a “Blinged” phone case!!

I really enjoyed this process.  First I decided on a white color scheme. I had this amazing white pearl butterfly pendant to use as my focal point. Then I had to find the right elements to compliment it, rhinestone, pearls, beads, and of course glue. At first there was a steep learning curve trying to find the best glue. I did finally find some great glue, but I am still making a mess of my hands. (I still  need to find a better delivery system) Since each and every element is put on one at a time with tweezers you would think it wouldn’t be so messy but it still is.

I love my phone case!!

I have had my new “blinged” phone case for about 4 or 5 months and it still looks great. And of course it protects my phone. Since then I have done a few more phone cases…

This one is a gift for my future daughter-in-law!

These are great fun to make. So if you have the time(it takes about 3 to 4 hours to make one), and the elements at hand, give it a try. And you can have a beautiful phone case too….

Or I can just make one for you!!!

About Black Raven Creations

I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner. I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!! Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more. I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
