I have seen many real zipper jewelry creations before but not like those of Ukrainian designer, Viktoriya Oparenko. Her store, ZASTIBKA, showcases her contemporary zipper jewelry style.

Many of her pieces have minimalist styling, taking advantage of the humble zipper's simple structure.

What struck me was her remarkable ability to come up with so many different ways to put together strips of zipper. She sometimes butts the zipper parts together. She also folds, rolls, stacks them and even incorporates beads in other designs. 

Some of her more colorful designs can be found in her extensive brooch collection. I selected her dragonfly and heart brooches as examples.

I had considerable difficulty trying to choose my favorites from this innovative designer.  Hop over to her store and you will see what I mean!
