My chosen design.

We have created 20 designs for our accessory that must incorporate our YKK zip, we had to also take inspiration from our observational drawings, and try to include a technique from one of our workshops. 

This is my chosen final design, a choker. I took inspiration from various nature inspired surface pattern (images below, Primary sources). The actual chain will be of a zip taken apart, and put back together so that the teeth are facing outward, I will hand-stitch them together. The 'flower petals' will be made from a zip which I will manipulate to create the shape I want, and I will stitch it into place, I may need to thread copper wire through it to hold the structure and shape. In the centre of the flower I will have the slider. I may also place a lace type effect, which we learnt in one of the workshops, in the centre.

Hopefully my design will work the way I want it to. :)
