Gem-encrusted iPod Mini

Crystal_mini_2Bored of the smooth, minimalist lines of your iPod? Why not cover it with plastic beads?! (or whatever these things are). We can't decide if this is just naff, or so naff that it passes naff and comes out the other side as tasteful. Somehow we suspect the former.

Um, I think she knows that. She's being flippant in case you missed it.

What an embarrassingly crude awful example of someone who thinks "Pink+beads(yeah yeah I know already)=girls+large amounts of cash". Please!!!!

Its just very very wrong.

it's kinda easy but pretty time consuming hey!
first get ur tiny swarovski crytals or rhinestones for a cheaper version (at ur local arts n craft store)and clear cement glue. the key is to use small crystals cos the bigger ones make it look tacky.
then figure out what design u wanna have.. (i did a flower print on mine) it's great to have a reference picture and u can get ideas from www.crystalmini.com
start glueing from the wheel outwards and its up to u how creative u wanna get with ur placement pattern..
the thing with cement glue is that if u make a mistake just dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and place it at the base of the crystal and it'll come right off
if u dont want ur ipod to look too blinged out, dont cover the whole thing with crystals.. do a simple two toned mosaic around the wheel or something... =)
