GIVEAWAY - Plucking Pendants - Recycled Guitar String Necklace!

AND THE WINNER IS:

True Random Number Generator Min: 1 Max:248 Result: 41 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

MEGAN!

Plucking Pendants creates amazing recycled guitar string jewelry! When I saw Ashley's gorgeous work I fell in love!

(plus I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but am a bit dexteritiously - uh, something like that - challenged)

Ashley grew up in a small town in southern New Hampshire where she spent lots of time in her mothers craft store.

(can a girl get any luckier than having a mother who owns a craft store?)

She has lived many places since then and is now settled in Oregon where she loves seeing live music, rivers and beaches, creating things with her hands, watching trashy TV, and hanging out in her studio space!


We are so lucky to have one of her amazing pieces for this week's giveaway!

WHAT YOU GET:

One lucky winner will receive this gorgeous mixed metal shiny circle of goodness made from a retired copper guitar string! It is 1 1/4" and hangs from a 18" antique brass chain that closes with a copper lobster claw clasp- so perfect!



HOW TO WIN:

Visit Plucking Pendants and check out her amazing work - then come back here and leave a comment letting her know which piece is your favorite!

What a cool idea!! A lot of times, 'found art' jewelry doesn't really look like jewelry (to me). But this retains its integrity as a guitar string AND manages to look like wearable jewelry. Well done!!

The circle necklaces are my fave, like the giveaway piece. The different types of string and colors are all great!

I like the acoustic guitar string cuff links- how creative!

RACHEL DEMSICK said...

you always find the coolest things cat! LOVE LOVE LOVE this so very much- what a fabulous way to recycle. my husband is always breaking strings. i should send them ALL to plucking pendants rather than having them collect on my carpet! moving onward....

off to tweet:)
thanks for the amazing giveaway & for being crafty- BOTH OF YOU!
