Vintage zipper rosettes.
(Sorry my photos are so blurry. I was a little shaky this morning.)
These are all MINE. I have been making them for others as well.
That's normally my style.
But lately my style has been to love A LOT of them and so I can't stand to part with too many.
I make them from vintage zippers. The kind that have been sewn into clothing, then laundered hundreds of times and then for some reason or another, torn out. People just don't do this that often these days...remove zippers before discarding a piece of clothing. That's why I love them so much. Just think of all the time involved in getting this zipper JUST RIGHT.
