Louise Loewenstein

Louise Loewenstein has been a contemporary fiber artist for over 30 years. Her first work was making baskets that expand the traditional image of this ancient Native American craft. More recently, her line of zipper jewelry was inspired by a trip to South Africa and an immersion into native crafts. Many items Louise saw for sale began with recycled materials. When she returned home she began to see everyday items in a new way.

"As I worked with a variety of zipper pulls, the challenge became how to configure them so that it was not obvious what they were at first glance," says Louise. " When people realized the necklaces were made of zippers they were amused. Bringing a little whimsy into our world was reason enough to keep creating new designs!"

Comments about ZIPPER BRACELETS:

I already love this artist, so I was grateful to find her product on Uncommon Goods, a website that I love, too! Becuase the tri-zipper bracelet was too expensive for a gift, I purchased this bracelet for my step-daughter. She and I have the same taste, and we both love interesting and one of a kind products. She just loves the bracelet. Though it does not hold its shape when it is NOT being worn, overall it is exactly as it is described. It's not too heavy, very comforable to wear, and has a magnet closure that makes it super easy to put on by yourself. It stands out, and it has gotten noticed wherever we go. Great bracelet, and worth the price for its uniqueness!

Magnetic clasp is easy to put on yourself but doesn't lend to a secure feeling latch. While its unique and well done it's a bit pricy!

    Comments about ZIPPER BRACELETS:

    I wear it everyday and constantly get compliments. The only drawback is that I fear that the magnetic clasp will fail eventually and I will lose this treasure. My only comfort is knowing that a stranger will be delighted when they find it.
