  • swarovski pearls or of other kind
  • cups to close
  • metal wire from 0.6 mm
  • a closure

Cut about a meter of nylon and puts the two leaders in the needles.


Remove the metal clip that is at the end of the zipper and open it so as to separate the teeth that form the central body of the hinge itself. threader for a needle in a tooth on the right and the other needle in the tooth of the left symmetrically opposite.
