Anni Albers Washer Necklace

A mid-century artist mostly known for her textiles, Anni also designed jewelry using common household items such as washers and bobby pins. I decided to make one of her famous washer necklaces for myself, and luckily had no problem finding tutorials online. The Small Object has step-by-step photos, and I really liked the suggestion by Carly at cutoutandkeep.net to use varying sizes of washers.

The materials cost almost nothing. I used polyester grosgrain ribbon because it was cheap and I loved the color, but if you can find rayon it’s much nicer. The finished product has weight to it but is very comfortable. I hope to get a lot of wear out of it this fall/winter.
