Baubles for Your Mobile Phone

Cell charms are fun pieces of jewelry that dangle from a cellphone. This project is also a great way to use up any extra beads you have lying around, or showcase your vintage finds in a new way. This cute vintage owl cell charm, as created by jewelry designer Kris Nation, takes less than 10 minutes to make!
