I am Angela Lee. I started making jewelry and accessories out of buttons and zippers earlier this year.
It started when I made a visit to one of my favorite overpriced stores in the mall. I saw a bunch of their necklaces and hair accessories and thought to myself, "oh these are so cute!" then I would look at the price tags and think, "oooh, maybe not so cute." And put them back. But as I was walking out of the store, I thought, "Hey! I could make that same look with buttons and ribbon." So I went home and dug out some buttons and some ribbons and put together my first necklace.
And so it began. I started making a new necklace every weekend as a way to unwind from my day job. Then something sad happened. I lost my day job. So I was very stressed and needed a way to unwind when I was stressed out too much from my current situation. So I went to my crafting table. I started making a lot of different stuff. And that is when I started incorporating zippers into my designs as well.
I felt like I was all over the place with my ideas. I felt like I needed to stick to one thing and that was it, but honestly, I have. Fasteners.
So come with me on this journey and learn how I come up with my designs. I am going to be sharing some tips and tricks on how I make my stuff.
