Jewelry Made From Recycled Bass Strings
by Melissa L Keller.
I began taking an interest in making jewelry in early 2018.
As a beginner, I had a hard time affording all the right tools and all the beautiful beads or wires I would have liked to order.
The idea struck me that old bass guitar strings could make cute earrings, bracelets, and more.
My bass player husband plays a lot, every day. He goes through strings on a regular basis.
I now had a free and recycled material that will continue to come in as long as my husband continues playing.
I began making more and more earrings, each pair different than the last.
The bass strings are stainless steal or nickel wound around a steel wire core.
They make beautiful shapes, and match endless amounts of colors or beads.
Now just one of many types of jewelry that I make, bass string jewelry is unique and meaningful to me and the customers who purchase it.
