one day i was bored and wanted to make something and the next best thing lying around were zip ties and with a little try and error i found a way to convert the ties into beautifull flower resembling shapes that can be made into broches and pendants. just like the story of the ugly duckling.
so have fun making your own zip tie jewelry.

here is how:
Step 1: Ingredients
- hot glue
- brooch needles
- jump rings & pliers
Step 2: Connecting the ties
connect the cable ties to each other:
slip the second cable tie through the recipient of the first. then the 3rd through the 2nd, the 4th trough the 3rdb, the 5th through the 4th and finally the first through the 5th - you get the drift.
pull the ties as tight as possible.
