This is a bracelet that I made out of recycled acoustic guitar strings. This is an excellent gift idea for the male or female music lover on your shopping list. In this bracelet, I used a full set of six strings from an acoustic guitar with colored brass ball ends attached. The strings used in this bracelet are gold colored, probably a bronze alloy.

A word on sizing: After making dozens of bracelets for friends and family; I was custom fitting each one for comfort, I started measuring them. Then after taking a brief survey, it seems that my bracelet sizes roughly line up with adult (male) T shirt sizes. I can wear both xs and s comfortably (at 5'1" and 130 lbs small frame) meanwhile my boyfriend is 5'11" and 200 lbs large frame, and can wear both a large and extra large comfortably. So if you are buying for a gift, roughly estimate their T shirt size and if they are small framed, get the smaller size, etc.

The first four pictures are like the bracelet you will receive; the bracelet shown in the fifth picture is not the one being sold, it is just to demonstrate flexibility. Also, I have found that this bracelet’s flexibility allows me to slide it up my arm and out of the way while washing my hands.

If you know someone who plays a stringed instrument and changes their strings regularly, please put me in touch with them. I would like to keep the strings from ending up in a land-fill. Most guitar strings are made up of several kinds of metal (copper, brass, bronze and nickel), so some will tarnish. I suggest storing the bracelet sealed in a plastic bag. If it is left out it might oxidize. Most the patina can be removed by rubbing paste style toothpaste on it (not gel) and scrub with an old toothbrush, rinse and dry with a paper towel.

I currently get strings from:
* Nick Collura at Insea Sound Shop in Nelsonville, Ohio
* Dick Evener at Signature Music in Lancaster, Ohio
* Gene Imbody at United Lutherie in Jacksonville, Ohio
* Frank McDermott at Blue Eagle Music in Athens, Ohio
* Tim Spires at Stix in Time in Lancaster, Ohio

This bracelet was featured on the front page in this treasury on October 21, 2011.
The original one is sold and now this is a stock photo.

Thank you for looking!
I have other guitar string bracelets ready to go:

All recycled guitar string bracelets come in a recycled guitar string paper envelope. They will usually fit in a large envelope (like a birthday card). All other jewelry comes in a gift box.
My products come from a smoke free home. (I didn't realize how much this was an issue until I bought a used Wii controller; SMELLY!)

* Shipping will be via USPS 1st Class Mail. (Insurance extra. If interested, convo me and I can send an updated invoice.)
* International shipping is available.
