There’s a few jewelry companies out there that make their wares from used guitar and bass strings and donate some proceeds to charity, one being Strüng. One that came recommended to D.U. from Gig Rigs is The Guitarwrist out of the U.K., which describes it mission this way (from The Guitarwrist website):
- “We make bespoke bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings from artists used guitar strings and plectrums, all hand made in the UK”
- “90% of the profits from each sale go to the Artist’s charity of choice”
- “Around 95% of the components from the strings we receive will be used to create the jewellery pieces”
Sounds pretty good. And yes, D.U. has donated strings to this outfit more than once.
