A few years ago, I featured an amazing artisan, Odile, who made Whimsical Zipper Brooches from zipper teeth and upcycled wool sweaters. There are different ways to make this type of design. One way was shared by Suzy Myers of Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom. Her tutorial for a Pretty Peacock Brooch uses zipper teeth and felt roving. This is the sort of tutorial which will please felting enthusiasts out there!
You are not limited to just peacocks. Try your hand at sketching out different motifs with the zipper teeth. Many designs can be adapted to becoming pendants if brooches are not your thing. Or consider getting the brooch/pendant combination finding so you don't have to make up your mind!
