After several failed business ventures, London-based Philip Parrott was feeling down in the dumps, admitting he often buried his head in his hands and cried thinking about his situation.
Searching for a new business idea, he thought of bling and Paris Hilton, and eventually saw a future in rhinestone encrusted cell phones.
Last February, Parrott started his own cell phone design studio called Krystali, and instead of tears, hes up to his eyeballs in glittering Swarovski crystals.
He creates cell phone tributes to Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, flags and other creative designs in crystals, saying, Anything goes, to be honest. Parrott doesnt know if any celebrities are carrying one of his bedazzled phones yet, but thinks theyre perfect for Ms. Hilton and young Hollywood.
Hes not as confident about his own countrys celebs, though, noting, I dont think Ill ever get as far as the royal family.
