Valentine's Day Cell Phone Decoration Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Cell phone straps are all the rage. Everyone's cell phones are starting to look the same these days. Make yours stand out with this playful "hugs and kisses" lanyard.

Step one: Begin by cutting a piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire about eight inches long. Attach one end of the wire to the jump ring on the cell phone finding using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String on a blank heart alphabet bead, followed by a hex spacer, an 8mm Swarovski crystal bicone, a 6mm bicone, a 5mm light Siam bicone, a 6mm light rose bicone, and another 8mm crystal bicone. Next, put on a heart letter bead "X", a 1.5mm two row hex bead, a heart letter bead "O", and a hex bead. Repeat this pattern twice more, ending with a hex bead. Reverse the crystal pattern you started with to work back toward the other end of the loop. Finish with a blank heart bead.

Step three: Crimp the end of the wire to the jump ring on the cell phone strap. Cover both crimp tubes with sterling silver crimp tube covers.

Step four: Attach to your phone, purse or zipper, or give as a gift to a friend!
