Bling My Thing is a German company that lets you combine your creative side with your affinity for luxury goods. They offer an assortment of DIY sets to let you “bling” your favourite items with genuine Austrian Swarovski Crystals.

Last year, the Berlin company blinged out over 10,000 cell phones. They also added dazzle to the dashboard of a Cadillac XLR with 20,000 Swarovski crystals

Bling My Thing is gaining popularity with celebrities too. Paris Hilton, Bruce Willis and Pink are among stars who have had their cell phones blinged.

Chief designer, Ayano Kimura's latest collection features Japanese-inspired mosaics which feature crystals plated in 24 karat gold between the twinkling jewels. A PDA from this line sells for 1999 Euros.

They'll also adhere Swarovskis to shoes (think gem-stone-encrusted stilettos or Nikes with glittering logos), Bluetooth headsets, iPods, money clips, flasks, cigar cutters, baby bottles and anything else you could deck out in rhinestones, including Rubik cubes.

Their products are now available at Düsseldorf's fashionable shop for all things affluent, JADES as well as online.

No one will be calling you a geek after you've blinged your thing.
