Hello, my name is Joyce Roseman, designer of Strung Up Recycled Guitar String Jewelry (since 2009). Our jewelry designs are birthed from pure creative inspiration. Not having ever seen this anywhere before, in March of 2009, we began our vision of making unique innovative guitar string designs. What began great, will end great.

There's a long list of my designs that have been stolen and copied. That just proved to me those who do so have no class and they certainly are not true artists. I'ts disappointing and hurtful when you see your art copied. It is not a complement in any way.

Furthermore, those who have copied and stolen our designs are stealing from a man with mental illness, who as of this point in his life, is lucky to be alive and work. Our desire to make jewelry from recycled guitar strings was truly innovative and fresh. And we use our business as a platform to raise awareness for mental illness.

Having found that Etsy doesn't care about oversaturation or stealing, we have move our website. You can visit the link to learn more about what's new with our company and we thank you as always for your business.
