Recently I discovered zipper art (yup, it's a thing) so I thought I would share some inspiration I've found online for creating accessories out of an old (or new) zipper. If you don't happen to have a free zipper on hand, they are inexpensive and easily purchased online.
Zipper flowers are one of the most common forms of zipper art and there are lots of online tutorials like this one by Linda on craftaholicsanonymous to show you how easy they are to make.
Turning a zipper flower into a bracelet, a necklace, or a brooch are just some of the great ideas I found on Pinterest.
Of course if flowers aren't your thing, there are lots of other shapes you can create with zippers to add some fun and funky jewelry to your wardrobe.
You can also use zipper art to embellish a bag or purse.
Of course if you love the idea of zipper art but are simply not inclined to be crafty you'll find some wonderful ready-made options on Etsy, like this adorable Owl Zipper Art Brooch by handcraftusa.
or a statement necklace by Zastibka.
So what do you think? Do zipper art accessories suit your personal style aesthetic?
