Made from recycled guitar and bass guitar strings, these make perfect gifts for musicians or music fans. These strings have been used by musicians in the Oxfordshire area and many of the strings have been used during gigs. Because they are recycled, many of the strings have fret marks on them, which adds to the character of each piece. It’s great to be able to upcycle something into a unique piece of jewellery rather than adding the strings to landfill.
The strings were sterilized first, then the bangle was made from a silver coloured bass guitar string. It is finished with a rose patterned silver bead and the ends are wire wrapped with red wire then soldered. The string used in this bangle is the thinnest bass guitar string and is a single layer, so it isn’t as bulky as the ones made from heavier gauge strings. There are no clasps on these bangles so please check the measurements and make sure it will fit over your hand before ordering. The strings can be manipulated to fit over your hand but they will not stretch. Guitar strings often contain nickel so these items are not suitable for people with a nickel allergy. Comes in an organza gift bag. This bangle is unisex and the size would works as a loose bangle for a lady, but is large enough to fit over a man’s hand.
