zipper jewelry by kate cusack

kate cusack is a brooklyn based designer creating artistic jewelry pieces that look beyond their material’s given purpose. while cusack uses the material to make jewelry, you probably know it better as zippers. yes, that’s right, cusack uses the functional closure used on your jacket to make bracelets, brooches and necklaces. she has been making things using metal-toothed zippers since 2003. as she points out ‘it’s ironic that most fashion designers try to hide or disguise zippers in their creations. however, I love zippers’ shiny metal teeth and I want to show off, not hide, their sparkle and their sinuous flexibility.’
