Cell phone charms used to be all the rage! That was a short-lived trend because newer cell phones have no place to hook them. Meanwhile crafters and bead suppliers have jillions of them left over.
Likewise, when I was trying to sell my wares at local craft shows years ago, I created some cell phone charms with an assortment of really nice sterling silver bead designs and Swarovski crystal.
Guess what? I still have some of them! They are nearly impossible to sell since no one is interested in them any longer.
So what do you do with them now?
Great idea for cell phone charms
I love incense and have several types of incense burners in my home, including bottle incense holders.
They come with a large split ring and golden cord that hangs on the side. You put the incense stick into the split ring and then insert the stick in the bottle so that the smoke comes out of the top and the ventilation holes on the side.
Over the years the silver split ring had become blackened from the smoke and the little golden cord had become frayed. So I took one of those unwanted cell phone charms and attached it to a new split ring. See how nice it looks?!!
Phone charms are a great way to add a little beaded decor to just about anywhere. Check my Etsy shop to see which ones I have left 🙂

There are times in life when you just need a little Romance. A romantic beaded jewelry necklace, a candlelight dinner for two or a crazy blind date with a handsome prince disguised as a newspaper reporter, like Clark Kent, right? If I were a bachelorette I would be thinking and dreaming of these things.
I had a great opportunity through The Artisan Group® to submit a piece of jewelry to the wardrobe stylist of the ABC “Bachelorette” TV show for consideration of use in future Bachelorette episodes.
This was not a show that I had ever seen, so I spent an afternoon watching different episodes that I found on You Tube. It was very entertaining, with a variety of beautiful jewelry and the use of many different styles.
Romantic Beaded Jewelry Necklace
This romantic beaded jewelry necklace was submitted for consideration, and made using a large and unique sterling silver bead that I acquired from India some years back.
I combined this unique bead with small Swarovski crystal bead accents to form a romantic teardrop pendant. I then attached it to a delicate sterling silver chain that was also adorned with crystal.
