old guitar strings
I am probably not the only music geek who has old guitar strings lying around the house, most of which have significance or at least sentimentality of some sort attached to them.
In trying to find something to do with some guitar strings in my possession, I came across this very cool site, called STRINGSandaDARE. It’s a local Minneapolis artist who makes gorgeous jewelry out of guitar strings, and yes, can do a custom order with your own guitar strings.
If you go to the web site, the backstory is cool (and music related, hence the justification for me posting it here), and the attitude likewise. And yes, I am having her make me a bracelet from some Patti Smith guitar strings I got at a show in Seattle a few years ago.
