Hot Off The Press

We just came up with a new design at Buddysystem Productions.

Made from satin floss and steel bicycle chain spacers, the design was inspired by a the work of Anni Albers.

A Bauhaus textile artist, Anni and her husband Joseph (also an artist) escaped the Nazis and fled to the States in 1933. During the war when materials were scarce, she often used found objects in her art: buttons, washers, paperclips, etc. in her work.

I got the idea for this necklace design from a jewerly kit sold by the Anni and Joseph Albers Foundation. The kit used the same thread pattern, but was made with flat steel washers and ribbon.
