cheap-thrill-bobby-pins
Here comes a cheap thrill that satisfies our crafty side: A D.I.Y necklace that, once assembled, evokes the look of Jill Platner's masterpieces used in Vena Cava's spring 2009 collection. The Anni Albers 1941 Jewelry Studio Kit from the MoMA store will cost you only $13.99 and the time it takes to string together the silver beads and bobby pins. With just a little bit of handiwork (and let's face it, that's the fun part) you'll have a necklace that works seamlessly from day to night and the beaming pride of an amateur jeweler— lookalike Vena Cava evening gown not included.
