How My Guitar String Jewelry is made

Since half of my handmade jewelry is made with guitar strings, donated by my husband and a few awesome musician friends, I thought I'd share the process of how it all happens.

First I want to share a cool video from the show "How it's made" on the making of guitar strings.  I was pretty fascinated by the process myself.

Then........... step two.  Music is made and the magic begins.

Joe Barborich and Scott Walters of The Katz Sass Blues Band (my hubby is the cute one on the left)

Then......... step three.  The used strings are gently placed into my super special "Guitar String Box"

Then......... step four.  Ta Da!!!!!!  After hours and hours of contemplation and pilot programs and test driving :D............

Then........ step five.  To the shipping department to be packed up and out the door for speedy delivery  to a very happy customer


So there you have.  From womb to tomb as they say in the manufacturing business.  Hope you enjoyed this demonstration of a very complex and logistically complicated process.  

Blessings to All

    1. Thank You Peggy. I have a whole lotta fun making these too. And you can create pretty much any kind of design as long as the strings cooperate. They do have a mind of there own sometimes.
