Bass String Beaded Hoop Variations

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.

Bass String Owls

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.

Bass String Owl Hoops

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.

Big Simple Bass String Hoops – my favorite

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.
