Recycling G Strings

March 8th, 2011 at 09:37 am

What do you do when your BIL is a classical guitarist and accumulates piles of spent metal strings like this...



and what do you do when you have a strong environmental ethic to reduce waste, reuse things, and instill the desire to recycle in more people?

You combine a vision of creative design with a skill making jewelry and produce something like this...

G String Guitar Bracelet



Brass coiled guitar strings are strong and springy in this jingle jangle bracelet. Fun mix of turquoise, cloisonne, and stone form your own blues group.

E String Guitar Bracelet



Don't let the delicate appearance fool you. Many strands of super strong steel guitar strings will never break. Demurely colored in peach / pink / tan glass and pearl.



Just two of the new line from Pretty Cheap Jewelry for the frugal environmentalist music lovers. Prices start at $24 ea. Available April 2011.

    Thank goodness you are using THOSE g-strings! Otherwise it would be yucky. Wink You are really creative and I like the bracelets. They lead me to think a bit of the bracelets I have seen from the Hmong people that are made of thick elephant hairs, but of course those are usually more minimalistic and not as pretty. Even better, you have the insurance that the strings are not going to waste. Nice.
