It was love at first sight for us when we laid our eyes on designer and friend Tara St. James’ “fasten-ating” accessories upcycled from broken zippers, and we’re thrilled to be able to give away two of our favorite pieces to one lucky Ecouterre reader! St. James has put together a special set that includes her elegant single zipper necklace and rocker-chic zipper cuff, both made from excess zippers that have been saved from the dumpster. If you can imagine these two gorgeous pieces glinting on your arm and around your neck, enter our contest today for a chance to make your eco-fashion daydream into a reality!
