DIY by Urban Outfitters-How Cool is that?

DIY Anni Albers-$14

DIY Anni Albers-$14

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.
