How to Make Zipper Jewelry Tutorials

By on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 2 Comments

The first zipper tutorial I mentioned was Outi Pyy's statement piece. Then came the lovely zipper flower tutorial by Annie Mistak. There has been a ton of new zipper jewelry tutorials since then. So if you're game to try, check these out.

Sally McGraw of Already Prettyshowcased her handmade zipper necklace above on her outfit blog post .She also uploaded a Youtube video tutorial showing how you can make your own rosette necklace! Via

Before you toss out a dress or pants, remove the zipper and repurpose it! Rae's tutorial on Cut Out and Keep uses one from jeans to create this simple bracelet. You will need a lighter for this project! Via

An alternative but similar tutorial is Melissa Howard's on Suite101.

This lovely zipper flower tutorial is by Linda over at Craftaholics Anonymous. Isn't it pretty? Via

Rae's basic tutorial above can be used to form necklaces too. Here is her Heart and Key Zipper necklace project.
Rae's zipper pull earrings don't really need any more than the photograph to figure out how to make your own.

Silverbug Studio has an alternative earring style. Check out her zipper hoop earring tutorial.

Rae is a highly creative individual as she also have a number of very pretty lacy zipper cuffs. Show here is her white Steampunk zipper cuff . Her black and white Lolligoth zipper cuff is similar. These are actually project pictures - view the series and you can see how they are constructed including the clasp parts.

Here is Rae's Lolligoth zipper necklace project.

Something for the hair?  Then try All For This Penny Craft blog's zipper flower hairband tutorial. Via
