Unstuck Zipper Necklace

Unstuck Zipper Necklace

Zippers are fun, but is anything more frustrating than when a zipper breaks or gets stuck? Ever get had the zipper pull break off your jeans and leave you flying low? Ever get stuck in your winter coat because the zipper wont budge? Yep, I have been there. Only a few weeks ago, until I realized I just had to step out of the jacket! But hey, your mind isn’t very sharp sometimes when you get in panic mode. That’s why the Hitchhicker’s Guide says DON’T PANIC on the back cover.

As a tribute to an embarrassing encounter with a zipper, I made this zipper necklace. I’d been thinking about it for a while, but it took a battle with a zipper to get me to step up. I had seen Ginnifer Goodwin wearing an amazing zipper necklace. I really wanted one, and immediately thought of St. Petersburg stitch when I saw her wearing one. My version is only seed beads, so it’s great to wear with jeans.  I’d love to own a Van Cleef & Arpel zip necklace in turquoise, if anyone has a spare one hanging around.

      Thanks, Tanya!! It took me quite a while (and a lot of patience) to get the zipper to stay in place.

      Thank you! I didn’t know it was Wallis Simpson’s – it makes sense because she was so chic!
