We've been seeing exposed zippers on many handbags lately. From Alexander Wang's Donna Washed Hobo
to Lockheart's Zip It Addie Tote
. It's an unusual accent that adds an unexpected edge to any bag, especially ones as creative as Lockheart's Zip It Alana
where they were able to use expose the zipper throughout the entire front and create a tasteful flower. And now exposed zippers have made it's way to jewelry as well. Designer Kate Cusack creates pins, bracelets and necklaces by manipulating zippers to create intricate patterns and shapes that results in a one of a kind design. Featured is the Zipper Bracelet ($300) shown here with figure eight shapes throughout. Check out the rest of her collection below.
