Zipper Jewelry Happy Customer

This comment is from a customer who recently purchased
a Zipper Necklace and Zipper Band Cuff:

"They're here and they're absolutely gorgeous!!!!
Seriously, I love the cuff but the necklace is wow. I mean the picture doesn't do it justice. It's huge and shiny and perfect. And they're really well made.
As you can understand I'm super excited but you made my day. And my Friday night outfit.
And I will stop bubbling and get back to work after I thank you once again and wish you all the best cause you're really talented and seem like a very nice girl.

I'm so happy I bought them.

Zipper Jewelry featured in Lucky Magazine

From Lucky Magazine, April 2009, page 82:
"An extension of the trendy exposed zipper: the closures have opened up shown in deconstructed rows, they look, for all their toughness, softer and more elegant."

This Zipper Cuff and others (in different styles and prices) available through Kate's online shop.

Zipper Jewelry featured in New Zealand Magazine: M2Woman

From M2Woman:
"Costume designer, professional window dresser and jewellery designer. It's true that some people have all the luck, and in the case of Kate Cusack, much of the talent, too. As a costumier, her work is seen treading the boards from the East to the West coasts of America, but it is her zipper jewellery that garners the most air miles.

The collection consists of pins, necklaces and bracelets, each with a unique design crafted by the Brooklyn-based Cusack. Available online worldwide, customers can pick and choose from a behemoth of colour combinations to suit their wardrobe. As we power through this era of depleted means, now's probably not the best time to rock those ostentatious jewels. A zipper that is normally hidden or disguised as decoration? Well, that's just good sense."
