Like most people, I usually like to LISTEN to my music. Musician’s like the great Eric Clapton, Bela Fleck (who’d ever think that I’d like BANJO playing), Bonnie Raitt and more. So, why am I WEARING MY MUSIC?????
I was a little curious about a company called Wear Your Music, and I got very excited when I found out about what they do. I JUMPED at the chance to review this unusual piece of jewelry when I was contacted by them.
What’s it all about?
Wear Your Music, allows you to support the charities that are dearest to your favorite artists as well as to help recycle and make a fashion statement ALL ROLLED INTO ONE beautiful bracelet. Wear Your Music takes the old used guitar strings of some of the greatest musicians of our time and creates stylish affordable bracelets that allow fans and customers to wear a piece of rock history on their wrists.
Plus, in addition to recycling the strings that these musicians would normally throw away, WYM also uses 100% recycled silver for the beautiful engraved clasp on the bracelet. Each bracelet is packaged in a completely recycled DVD case and comes with a certificate of authenticity. A portion of proceeds goes back to each musician’s charity of choice, many of which are environmental non-profits.
Imagine wearing Eric Clapton’s guitar strings while supporting his Crossroads Foundation or supporting the Back to You Fund, while donning the used strings from John Mayer’s guitar on your wrist. This is a wonderful way to give to charity while supporting your favorite artists.
In addition to bracelets made from an individual artist’s strings, WYM also carries Fashion Bracelets made from used guitar strings starting at only $7.00, and YES a portion of the proceeds go to charity.
The bracelets look good worn alone, or by wearing a group of bracelets. The nice thing about these is that they are totally unisex and would look great on both men and women.
I like to give gifts that also support charitable organizations, so I’ll be giving Wear Your Music for a couple of birthdays coming up this year. With all of the teenagers and twenty-something’s that I go crazy trying to buy for, this will make shopping for them a piece of cake.
