Make your own Anni Albers designed necklace with this jewelry kit based on an original piece featured in a 1941 traveling exhibition of common-object jewelry by Albers and Black Mountain College colleague Alex Reed. Albers believed common materials could look "quite beautiful and even precious."
Anni Albers (1899-1994), whose work is included in the Jewish Museum's collection, is considered the foremost textile designer of the 20th century. As both student and teacher in the weaving workshop at the Bauhaus, Albers had an enormous effect worldwide on fabric design and the creation of singular weavings and wallhangings.
