Using vintage and recycled zippers, this brooch is made by gluing sections of zippers onto a polymer clay base.

The different colors of both the zipper and the teeth provide contrast and texture and a decorative pattern is achieved by shaping the rows of teeth into different shapes.

I made this brooch with the thought of love and Valentines Day. It only contains zippers in shades of reds and pinks.

Rather than just gluing a pin finding to the back of the brooch, you will see that an additional layer of polymer clay has been baked over the pin finding. No need to worry that the glue won't hold - a pet peeve of mine.

This pin has been made with exquisite attention to detail and excellent workmanship.

The brooch comes packaged nicely in a stylish black\/grey pinstripe box. Keeps it safe in transit and makes it really easy to give as a gift.

The last three pictures are representational only to show you the back, the size of the pin and what the gift box looks like.

The heart is approximately 1 1\/4"
