Guitar String Bracelets ... A Revolution in the World of Music and Fashion

In this world, two things often go hand in hand: fashion, and music. Fashion has been influenced by music, and likewise, music has been influenced by the world of fashion (Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini, anyone?). While reading one of the dozens of fashion magazines that arrive monthly on my doorstep, (Harper's BAZAAR, perhaps?) I stumbled upon the mention of a little website that embraced both topics. The name? Wearyourmusic.org.



The idea, began by Hannah Garrison, was originally to create bracelets made from used guitar strings for her musician friends. Meanwhile, a man by the name of Steve Bernstein was hard at work trying to figure out a unique way for guitar strings to garner advertising attention. One post on Craig's List was all it took; Hannah contacted Steve, and Wear Your Music was born.

The company flourished, and soon enough famous guitarists were donating their used strings to be used to make these bracelets. Big name stars such as Avril Lavigne, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, and Carrie Underwood now have their guitar string bracelets available for purchase right now, along with over 100 other popular musicians. Not to mention that each artist chooses a special charity for funds made by selling their bracelet ... how cool! Also available are generic guitar string bracelets and even multi-colored bracelets, some even with guitar picks and tiny silver guitar replicas attatched.



These guitar string bracelets are not only musically related, but they're gorgeous as well. These multi-colored beauties are so simple that they can be worn with anything, yet they hold such a strong and important meaning. Without music, fashion wouldn't exist; end of story. What better way to appreciate both worlds than to sport a bracelet made entirely of guitar strings?

I know I'll be getting my own guitar string bracelet, and you should too. Encourage the appreciation of music, fashion, and art. Buy a bracelet ... start a movement.
