The zipper is no longer just a utilitarian piece of equipment used for easy fastening clothing because the Zipper Necklace by Frans van Nieuwenborg and Martijn Wegman takes the piece of hardware to new heights as a fashionable accessory.

The Zipper Necklace by Frans van Nieuwenborg and Martijn Wegman is designed to look like a zipper that has been partially unzipped with the remaining portion left loose. The wearer then puts their head through the opening and voila; a futuristic piece of killer jewelry. Speaking about the simplistic design, the artists explain, "‘What do we have to add to a technical miracle such as the zipper? Nothing! So, that is what I did."

The Zipper Necklace by Frans van Nieuwenborg and Martijn Wegman is made from sterling silver, which means it won't tarnish and will be ready for plenty of wear.
