The bracelet I’m wearing is made from repurposed, used bass guitar strings. Much thanks to my long-time friend and former work co-hort David Kohler for such a thoughtful gift from @retunedjewelry.
Because of the various alloys used to make guitar/bass strings, they are extremely difficult to recycle. Over 700 tons of strings end up in the dump every year. Retuned Jewelry works with music shops and musicians to collect used strings that would have otherwise been thrown away and instead make a variety of jewelry that are works of art in their own right.
My buddy David is an amazing artist as well. Check out the beautiful exotic wooden bowls and vessels he spins at https://dgkdesign.com (hit the link in my bio).
Thanks for the killer gift, David! I miss giving you all my money in our weekly poker games. 🤘😎
