Guitar Strings for a Good Cause

Do you love interesting jewelry?

How about jewelry that supports a good cause?

Now how about interesting jewelry, that supports a good cause – that is made from something that musicians like Ani DiFranco, Benji Madden, Carlos Santana or John Mayer have used?

Wear Your Music creates unique bracelets from old guitar strings that would normally just get tossed.  Guitar strings can break and need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear from playing.

Musicians donate their used guitar strings to Wear Your Music, who then create bracelets from them.  The bracelets are created using the strings, and then finished off with sterling silver clasps.  Wear Your Music sells the bracelets and gives the proceeds to the charity of the musician’s choice.

It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

You get a cool bracelet with bragging rights that your favorite musician actually touched it…

The landfills are a little less full…

And charities benefit from the proceeds!
