This auction to benefit the Mockingbird Foundation is unique and custom made. Donated by Wear Your Music, the bracelet is created out of the guitar strings of Mike Gordon’s bass. This specific bracelet will be made to the specifications of the winner’s wrist.
Propelled by a love for music and a desire to give back to the community, Wear Your Music was founded by two people, music-loving financier Steve Bernstein and jewelry artist Hannah Garrison. Founded over coffee, Craigslist and a pile of guitar strings in August of 2007, the company and its guitar string bracelet projects have since raised nearly a half million dollars total for more than 60 charities.
Combining fashion, music and philanthropy, Wear Your Music has created two similar, yet distinct, lines of unisex music-related jewelry. The original line, the Wear Your Music Artist Bracelet, is a series of bangle-style bracelets crafted from used guitar strings, donated by over 150 artists (such as Eric Clapton, Jack Johnson, Bonnie Raitt, Trey Anastasio and Ani DiFranco). They are sold on the Wear Your Music website (below), with 100% of profits going to a charity selected by the artist. In this way, fans feel close to their favorite artist and the artist’s charity benefits.
The overwhelming response to the artist bracelets inspired the two to release a low-priced line of unisex, one-size-fits-all guitar string bracelets. Available in 7 colors, these have been very popular with nearly every age group and again, a portion of the profits is donated to charity. WYM also provides a range of other music merchandise, from charms to necklaces. WYM has received a warm media reception by such outlets as People, InStyle, Time Out NYC, The Today Show and MTV. Music fans on 4 continents have snatched up bracelets from their favorite artists, and the artists themselves have given the project their ready support and participation. Today, with more artists joining daily, there are no signs of Wear Your Music slowing down.
