My latest project

 

I just finished up this cell phone case. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

It's made of silver plate wire that was strung with a variety of glass seed beads - exploding in colors and sizes - then single stitch crocheted into a mesh envelope. I then sewed a purple with white polka dots linen liner and secured it inside the wire mesh envelope.

After choosing a beautiful dichroic glass cabochon that was made by Tonja Lenderman of  Tonja's Treasures, I wire wrapped and secured it onto the flap for use as the button portion of the closure. Then, I made the clasp portion from rubber cording that was also wire wrapped onto the front of the case.

I single crocheted a luscious variegated yarn into a small loop for a handle and together with a silver plate "C" charm secured them to the case as a final flair.

The measurements are approximately three and one half inches by two inches and the case was made to fit an LG Banter cell phone.

The following pictures are all clickable, for a closer view.
