Zipper Jewelry: Unlimited Spirit Art Video

Kate Cusack's Zipper Jewelry was the latest feature of the Unlimited Spirit video series created by Swiss luxury watch company, Rado.

Kate Cusack’s zipper jewelry is a culmination of her experiences transforming unusual materials in the world of costume design, window displays and sculptural/wearable designs. The pieces Kate creates are made from seemingly mundane materials and come to life when they are worn.

Kate crafts each piece by hand using nothing but zippers.
She is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Unlimited Spirit. RADO.

Many thanks to Yaara Sumeruk.

Introducing... Zipper Lace: the new series of Zipper Necklaces by Kate Cusack.

This new collection features the metal teeth of the zipper -- without the fabric element of the zipper. The Zipper Lace necklaces are light-weight, graphic and stunning. They are perfect for spring and summer.

Currently, the Zipper Lace series is available at Julie: Artisans' Gallery in New York and The Snyderman Works Gallery in Philadelphia. A select number of new necklaces will also be available through Kate's online store.
