Wear Your Music is allowing fans the chance to take home a piece of rock 'n' roll history, while supporting charities such as the World Food Program USA, Unicef and others. The New York-based group creates 100% eco-friendly jewelry that rocks—literally, turning used guitar strings from artists spanning the musical spectrum into stylish bracelets, which are sold with a certificate of authenticity. "These are strings that these musicians have used and would normally throw away," says co-president and designer Hannah Garrison, "It's great that we can recycle them and also offer people a chance to wear rock n roll on their wrists." In addition, the fine silver used on each bracelet is also 100% recycled, as is the DVD case each bracelet comes in.
100% of artist bracelet proceeds is donated to charities like Carlos Santana's Milagro Foundation and the Grateful Dead-affiliated Rex Foundation. So you can show off your musical taste, your unique rock 'n' roll style and do something good for the environment and for charity in one fell swoop.
The bangle-style bracelets, crafted from guitar strings donated by over 150 artists, include such rock luminaries Joan Jett and Peter Frampton, as well as members of Slightly Stoopid, Widespread Panic, Phish, The Allman Brothers Band and String Cheese Incident. In addition, the likes of Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Bonnie Raitt have also donated strings to Wear Your Music.
