G-String Guitar Earrings (GR004)
Strings play a pivotal role in all Glass Heart String Choir music—from pianos to guitars to harps to violins, strings produce the sounds we create and capture. Their lives on our instruments are often brief, but we believe they can become beautiful, permanent objects of art after they cease making beautiful sounds.
These earrings make for a small and delicate accent piece, and float approximately 1.5 inches below the ear. They are incredibly light and are a great way to add polish and a little shine to an outfit. They earrings are made from a guitar G string (specifically a 80/20 bronze Elixir HD Light G string). We love these strings because they have a bright and focused resonance, and they're specialized coating makes them both a bright, shiny gold color and especially well suited to become durable jewelry. G strings are just over half a millimeter wide, and this necklace features tri-wrapped interlocking rings connected with antique brass artistic wire t to alloy-plated stainless steel ear hooks (18mm x 0.8mm, hole size: 2mm). G strings are the upper most of the bronze coated strings on a guitar before they switch to steel strings, and as such it has a different character to lower, thicker strings. G strings are less bright shiny gold and appear thinner and have more of an antique brass look.
Our guitarist, Ian, changes his strings once a week when on tour and before each new recording session, so these strings are guaranteed to have been used to write, record, or perform songs we love (and that we hope you love, too!). Each piece is handmade by our producer and instrumentalist, Katie, and as such, each has individual character which we tried to capture in these photographs. Katie works to feel the natural bend of each string to find the right size and shape of each piece, so no two are alike. We hope you find the one that's right for you!
