I saw a zipper heart necklace on Etsy and decided to make my own version. I took apart the zipper from an old pair of white jeans. Enjoy(:

Take your zipper and cut off some fabric on the sides, so only less than a centimeter remains.
Zip it up to about 1/4 of the length
Cut off the excess fabric off the end of the right side
Fold the left half exactly as shown in the picture
Fold the right half on top of the left and line it up
Sew in place
Unfold it, and it should look like this
Cut off the excess fabric on the left half
Fold it again and sew the front half to the back
Flip it over and trim off the excess fabric
Take your two jump rings and twist them open with your fingers. Set them aside. Take your needle and poke two holes in the top corners of your zipper heart. Make sure you poke the holes next to the metal part of the zipper. You might want to get a thicker needle to make the holes big enough
Take your jump rings and pull them through the holes you made, but don't close them yet
Take your necklace chain and fold it in half to find the middle
Use your scissors to cut it in half
Take then end links and pull them through the open jump rings. Close the jump rings.
And voila! You have finished your zipper heart necklace!
