Guitar String Bracelet

from Busy Crow Studio
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Guitar String Bracelet
Guitar String Bracelet Guitar String Bracelet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Wire Working

Pattern Description:

The Guitar String Bracelet came about because I was so delighted when my son decided to learn the guitar, and I made a bracelet out of his first set of discarded strings.

It would be really cute with guitar picks as charms also....
I don't worry about the uneven brightness of the coils; sometimes they come out looking striped or mottled.
Remember to have a bell in your design, to keep the music going!

Safety Notes: You must use eye protection for this project. Guitar strings are actually wires that have a lot of tension wound into them, and they can spring back at you unexpectedly while you coil them. Also, as you trim the coils, be careful of any sharp ends.
