Zipper Jewelry - Mora's Jeweler Spotlight

Mora is pleased to announce Kate Cusack as the featured jeweler in its Spotlight Series for the month of October. On Friday, October 6th from 5:00-8:00pm, Mora is hosting an opening reception for the exhibition. The event is free, and all are invited to attend.

"Kate Cusack creates awe-inspiring wearable art from a single and very surprising material—the zipper. Dispensing entirely with the zipper’s function to concentrate solely on its form, Cusack makes magic from this modest material. Sometimes she leaves the textile intact, layering and manipulating the zippers into dynamic new dimensions. Trimming off the textile and setting the zipper teeth on end creates a finer line for Cusack to multiply and weave into compelling compositions. Her mastery of the material is evident both in her ingenious structures and her expert craftsmanship—meticulously well-made jewelry that is truly couture. Cusack’s elegant zipper jewelry is a striking reminder of the power of imagination and the joy of discovering beauty in something we encounter every day." - Marthe Le Van, owner of Mora Jewelry
