Repurposed 1970’s Zips

Is it junk or is it an opportunity? My mother was a seamstress and would love to sew. When she passed away in 1989 I kept all her haberdashery with the intention of finding a use for it.
I have used wire to crochet the zip heads into an edgy collar. From a distance the collar shimmers as the light catches the zip heads on various angles. From a distance it looks like a traditional sparkly piece of jewellery. Close up it is just crocheted zip heads. Each zip head is individual and representative of a time long gone. Together they weave a story.
