About ZipperedHeart

Sales 21,117
On Etsy since 2009

I love the smell and touch of vintage zippers!

I started creating and designing zipper brooches in 1992. I would make them only to give as gifts to family and friends. It was my older sister that encouraged me to sell them. Over the years I would sell them at street fairs and festivals.
It was not until 2009 that I decided to try Etsy. It was very slow going at first, but I was in for the long haul. It was great because I could direct all my creative engeries into my little site. After a few years I began branching out. I now make necklaces, rings, iPhone cases and my best sellers id badge reels.
I love the smell and touch of vintage zippers. I can now distinguish zippers by the decades in which they were manufactured. I get so excited when I uncover these lost treasures at antique stores, thrift shops and e-bay.
I have been a seamstress since I was eleven years old and have always enjoyed the creative process that sewing gives you. But I think turning discarded vintage zippers into tiny works of art is the ultimate in creativity.
