As seen on pinterest, people are making bracelets out of zippers. I wanted to give this a try. I think it should be called a ziplet. :)
You start with
thread and a needle small enough to fit through the beads
some type of clasp
In this picture I have some colorful glass beads, but as I got started I thought they were too big. I switched to a pearl bead instead.
Here it is with 2 sewn between the zipper.
I just criss crossed the zipper fabric and sewed the hook and link on. I know there are fancier things out there to finish the bracelet nicely, but this is what I had on hand.
Next, you trim all the excess fabric off as close to the zipper as you can.
After the clasp was on, I turned it over and this is how my bracelet looks. Go on and make your own! It did not take very long.
