Custom Guitar String Cuff Bracelet Jimmy Buffett
I received an inquiry regarding a custom bracelet I made using guitar strings - both new and old. The first I made was for a client with four strings used by Eric Clapton. There after I have made several using new strings for clients that loved the cuff. When Matt contacted me - he had one guitar string from Jimmy Buffett that had been put into a simple twist bracelet that was not comfortable, got caught on things and, well, not that masculine.... he loved the cuff I had done so the process began.
"I have some Jimmy Buffett guitar strings and am interested in possibly creating a similar piece....I have two questions. First, can you guarantee I will receive this by Christmas? Second... I would like something engraved inside the bracelet. Can/does the proposed price include the engraving? The text is approximately 40 characters. Please advise. Thanks again! in advance and I look forward to hearing from you."

Hi Matt Got photos / there is definitely enough to work with in length- as it's too big for you - we would need to add two strings / and as mentioned- there is a chance these strings will not be straight again - so something to think about - but I think it could work... as far as engraving not a problem - send me what you want it to say"
When Matt sent me his strings I realized that in fact they had twisted the one string twice.
Since he only had one string some decisions had to be made about the other three - we decided on D'Addario Acuoustic Guitar strings - Phosphor Bronze. The rep at Sam Ash suggested EJ16 as they were a little warmer in color than a few other types.
In addition, we made a few design changes to accommodate the difference in string ends as well.
The end result is beautiful and wearable.
