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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Wire Working SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 6-1/2" bracelet

Supplies Needed

  • Assorted beads of choice
  • Used guitar strings

I started with crafts when I was about 9 years old. I learned to knit, and I still remember everything about that experience: from the yarn (a cherry red worsted, purchased at the Woolworth store downtown), the needles (a lovely set of pink aluminum size 11), the project (a poncho, with white fringe - ala Santa!). It was made with simple stockinette stitch in a rectangle shape, and then folded into the poncho, with the fringe added. I had the parents on the block paying me to teach the other children (who frankly, were not that interested in learning to knit!). I didn't give up teaching, though, I have taught classes in beadwork and crafts, and it's always very satisfying to see someone get 'hooked' on a creative pursuit.
