Remember my post about the amazing Van Cleef and Arpels Zip necklaces?  We really cannot afford one of those transformative designs - they truly zip up and become bracelets.

But you can bead up a zipper necklace even if it doesn't actually zip up. The tutorial is by Claudia Cattaneo of Happyland87.

The tutorial for either a necklace or a bracelet.  You set where the closure stays. The design uses 15/0  11/0 and 8/0 seed beads as well as  chaton montee #53200 and superduo or twin beads.
