I made this steampunk style choker from an antique typewriter key that I salvaged from a 1917 Royal No. 5 typewriter, and a vintage brass clock gear from an old broken clock. The typewriter is strung on a bronze guitar string. The gear and typewriter key pendant measures 1 3/8" in diameter. The choker measures about 17" in length, and has a gold plated hook and eye clasp. The typewriter key is old, and shows signs of wear. All of my necklaces can be shortened upon request. This necklace is one of a kind and ready to be sent out.

All of my guitar and bass string jewelry is made from previously played strings. Some strings may have some discoloration, but I feel this adds to the character of the pieces. Since most guitar strings are made up of more than one metal, for example steel and nickel, they are not able to be recycled. Unless the strings are given a new use they will just end up in the trash, which makes my guitar string jewelry eco-friendly as well as being beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry.
