Do you have a musician that’s been an inspiration to you? Or perhaps you know someone who’s a die-hard fan of a rock legend. Then you must purchase one of these bracelets. Made from recycled guitar strings, they are so cool that we can’t decide which one to choose. They aren’t made from just any old guitar strings. In fact, they are the used ones from rockers around the globe.

The Original Artists Bracelets, are handcrafted by Wear Your Music and are actually made to order and packaged in recycled DVD cases. But what we find even cooler is that 100% of the proceeds from each bracelet goes to the non-profit of the artists choice.

For example, the money raised from Willie Nelson’s guitar strings ($100 per bracelet) benefits Farm Aid. Eric Clapton’s guitar string bracelet sells for a whopping $500 and benefits Crossroads Centre, a non-profit founded by Clapton to help those with addiction. Choose from other artists like Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, G. Love and Mike Gordon from Phish, whose guitar strings benefit the WaterWheel Fund for Vermont Flood Recovery.

According to The Boot, in 2011 Wear Your Music raised more than $60,000 for charities by selling the bracelets. The company was created when co-founder Hannah Garrison said that they noticed musicians throwing away their used guitar strings.

“We wanted to use these guitar strings to make a difference by recycling a piece of rock memorabilia to create bracelets for fans. We took it a step further and decided to donate the proceeds from the sale of the Artist Bracelet to the musician’s charity of choice,” Garrison said.
