Enjoy The Strings After They're Done Making Music.

Imagine wearing a bracelet, earrings, a wrist band or a pendant made from strings played by a friend, a loved one, yourself or your favourite musician.

I custom craft each piece - and will make something expressly for you from strings you provide to me - or from strings I've gathered from my musical friends.

I incorporate sterling silver wire and findings, together with natural pearls, Swarovski crystals, several kinds of beads (glass, wood and sterling) and charms to personalize each piece for you - or someone you'd like to gift.

Besides jewellery, I also create home decor items such as guitar string baskets, tree of life ornaments and tune catchers.

On my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Encorejewel, I share photos of works in progress and Encore news if you'd like to have a look.

Most musical instrument strings are made from very durable materials, so even though they've been broken or no longer stay in tune, they can retain their natural beauty for a lifetime and more, especially if they are taken care of, like any piece of quality jewellery.
