Seeing that we are ‘renovating’, which is an inadequate word for the work that we have to do on our house, we have been spending an inordinate amount of time at the hardware store. Staring, dazed up the nail, screw, nut and bolt isle during the week, I thought that I should probably not walk away without the supplies to create one of Anni Albers washer necklaces. They were very quick to make, each one taking only half an hour to thread. One could fit right in to any home reno wearing a bunch of these. Quite chic!
