Anni Albers Washer Ribbon Necklace | Tiny Sparkly Things (My DIY version, left) I fell in love with this necklace (found on SixSixSick, right photo), originally by artist Anni Albers. They sell the DIY necklace kit on Urban Outfitters for $14. (below photo) (A little bit about Anni Albers and the necklace kit from the UrbanOutfitters website: "This German-born American textile artist was always creating, even during WWII when fine materials were in short supply. Back then, she'd use unlikely objects from hardware and stationery stores to constantly make new and exciting pieces. A pioneer of 20th century Modernism, Anni, along with her husband Josef, revamped and challenged the purpose and aesthetics of modern art.
DIY Paper Jewellery When I got out my jewellery making equipment last week to create my Gucci watch knock-off, I was not only reminded of just how much supplies I have, but also, how much I used to enjoy making jewellery. So, I decided to make something super easy and fun that I can wear as an accessory this week. I had bought some Mod Podge Dimensional glue ages ago and have been dying to experiment with it.
The moment we saw Phillip Lim‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace, we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant! Inspired by our fondness of Lim’s necklace and our love of utilizing hardware, we made our own interpretation of a box braid necklace.
I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend!
As soon as Lauren and I saw this editorial in Flare Magazine, we knew we had to recreate these awesome, friendship bracelet-like necklaces. We promise they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips. To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin. Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, Tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?). Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut.
Erica and Lauren are a designer and stylist who always have our crafting fingers itching to recreate the fun and easy DIY projects posted on their blog, Honestly...WTF.

Did you know that if you cut into a walnut you get a perfect heart?
