About

Jewellery made from broken musical instruments

This jewellery project springs from the Kitty and Cadaver online book. The book, about a band that fights monsters through music as magic, features a character who wears jewellery made out of destroyed musical instruments belonging to band mates who have died in the line of duty.

When I created the character, I looked to see if anyone in Australia was making jewellery from repurposed instruments in this way - and nobody was.

So, I sought donations of broken instruments, and partnered with Breanna Handfield, who is a costumer and crafter. Since then, craft jewellers Amy Chidgzey and KRin Pender Gunn have joined the team. We now bring you jewellery that gives dead musical instruments a new artistic life!

Donors to date include:
Jess Harris and Tim Cav - guitar strings
RGB Radio - guitar strings

Aaron Jelbart - broken banjo
Eddie Tichelaar/abc Pianos - and entire walnut-veneer piano, warped beyond repair

Tom Ferguson, violin maker - broken violins, bridges for violins and cellos, broken bows
