Zipper Earrings


Happy Happy Friday!! Remember those Zipper Shamrocks from the other day? Well, I was looking at the zipper pulls trying to decide what to do with them, and ya know, they’d make some really cute Zipper Earrings!

    It’s like a blast from the past! We used to have zipper earrings when I was growing up. And zipper necklaces that actually zipped up. I always wanted a necklace but was never cool enough. he he he

        It zipped up the chain, like a bolo tie. I wonder if there is a picture online somewhere…. ha ha

    Hi, Linda,

    I got our kits last week, and we’re working on the earrings today. I’ve never worked with E6000 before, but was reading the instructions. Do I need to scruff-up the earring backs or zipper pulls? Or is that not necessary? I don’t want to damage the pieces before I even begin, but I want to make sure that these will work. ;>

    Must be something in ‘our’ name cuz I am also a craft addict. I don’t always accomplish a lot (due to issues with my hands & being a caregiver to my husband), but I keep on buying things I plan on doing one day. My husband asked why I keep buying things, and for a long time I couldn’t come up with the real answer myself cuz I have A LOT of STUFF! Then one day, it dawned on me – If I stop buying ‘things’, that means I have lost HOPE – the hope that one day I will be able to make things agsin. I won’t give up that hope. Thank you for this idea cuz it looks like something I might be able to do. Happy crafting to all!
