Melanie Brown is creative in so many ways. She is a talented photographer, and makes super cool jewelry out of new and used guitar strings.
Melanie started heartSTRINGS Jewelry in the spring of 2014 while she was going to school in Nashville, Tennessee. She did it as a hobby for about six months and then decided to try it out as a business. Words cannot describe how excited she was when her first order came in. She was so happy that others seemed to enjoy the jewelry as much as she did.
Each piece of jewelry is designed and made by her, using new and/or used guitar strings, copper wire and a variety of stone beads and fresh water pearls. Melanie loves the simplicity of the materials and how well they complement one another.
You can find her jewelry online on her Facebook page and on her Etsy online store.
“But if you cut a piece of guitar string I would wear it like it’s a wedding ring.” – Josh Ramsay, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tavish Crowe
