I remember when I was about 10 years old I created paper clip earrings with ordinary silver paper clips and ear wire from odd earrings. It’s amazing the things that one comes up with as a child. It really doesn’t take very many tools to be creative, you just need that mindset that will allow you to go beyond normality.
As I was doing my weekly browse through of course one of my favorite stores, Urban Outfitters, I came across a DIY section. Zeroing in on a tantalizing washer and pink ribbon necklace by a German-born American textile artist, Anni Albers, I realized that the piece was remarkably catching. This DIY kit includes all of the materials you need to re-create this masterpiece using very basic materials such as washers and ribbon. In addition, sales from this kit go to supporting the Albers Foundation, a resource for artists and student and preservation of the art by Anni and Josef Albers. Check it out on Urban Outfitters.
