Synopsis: This fun guide teaches you how to emulate the fashion-forward looks to top designers, such as the grand dame of handbags Judith Leiber, without breaking the bank on bling. Detailed instructions and more than 150 color photos demonstrate how to create glitzy items from bags acquired at garage sales and flea markets, using genuine Swarovski crystals or reasonably priced acrylic or metallic rhinestones and a healthy helping of creativity. Featured projects in this book that help you bring the bling include:

   •  Spectacular handbags
   •  Snappy cell phone, iPod and MP3 cases
   •  Bold business card cases
   •  Wickedly cool sunglasses
