Hiouchi Jewels Unviels Rose and Bolt Jewelry Collection

On March 1, Hiouchi Jewels, in partnership with Warner Music Artist Services, has debuted the officially licensed, hand-made Rose & Bolt Grateful Dead jewelry collection. Rose & Bolt brings to life Sarah Lewis’ love for and inspiration from the Grateful Dead, as well as her remarkable dedication to her craft.

The Grateful Dead’s music has been an important part of my life and an inspiration for all of my creative work, so this collaboration is a dream project for me. I’ve carried my modern bohemian aesthetic from Hiouchi Jewels into this collection, adding the iconic Grateful Dead Roses & Bolts to each piece. The Grateful Dead is so much more than music- it’s a lifestyle, a community, a vibrant, unique culture. It’s truly an honor to have my jewelry join the rich lineage of licensed Grateful Dead artwork and merchandise. – Sarah Lewis, designer

The Rose & Bolt collection features handmade rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all featuring roses and the classic 13-point lightning bolt. Elegant, delicate styles come in sterling silver, rose gold, and 16k yellow gold. Bolder, statement styles feature turquoise stones and quartz crystals.

Although Rose & Bolt carries similarities to Sarah’s classic Hiouchi Jewels Collection, many aspects are new. This marks her first time using rose gold, appropriate for the rose motifs in the collection. Sarah has typically made jewelry for women, and is excited to debut her first unisex/gender neutral collection.

Rose & Bolt Jewelry is sure to attract fans of all ages. Each piece comes in beautiful, collectors boxes and microsuede drawstring pouches. Classic styles can go from day to night, office to dance floor, from formal events to Zoom parties! Rose & Bolt jewelry will prove to be coveted pieces in any Deadhead’s collection.

The name Hiouchi Jewels is inspired by the time Sarah spent living in the majestic Northern California Redwoods. Now based in Evergreen, Colorado, Sarah designs Jewelry & Home Decor for women like herself ~ Nature Loving, Fashion Forward, Modern Bohemians. They’ve also partnered with One Tree Planted, to plant a tree for every order shipped.

2011 Commemorative NYE NYC MSG Token Pendant by Jennifer Kahn

Vermont artist Jennifer Kahn has been making jewelry for over a decade. Her designs fuse old and new, industrial and natural, urban and ethnic. She graduated from UVM with a BA in Art and English in 2001. Jennifer has sold her work at craft shows, in galleries and has been featured in exhibits across the US, UK, and Japan. Her work has been in top jewelry magazines and several books, included the cover of the Lark book “Stitched Jewels“.

For this New Years run, Jennifers’ second token evokes the current presence of activists camped out in NYC.  This year there are many fish and they play a more active role in the design – poised to take a bite out of the big apple. Not only does it commemorate the New Year’s Run with all 4 dates etched along the edge, but it is a true sign of the times with the letters “OCCUPY MSG” subtly spelled out among the fish. We might be small but our numbers are strong. From a distance the image resembles a flower… we come in peace.

Available in Sterling silver as a token $25, or pendant (on cord $38, or sterling chain $48) and NEW THIS YEAR – BRASS (not pictured) as a token $15, magnet $20, or pendant on cord $25. The token is the size of a quarter and makes a great holiday gift for your favorite fan! In a limited edition of 100 tokens, they are poised to sell fast. Jennifer’s signature can be found on the bottom edge. Once again, 10% of every sale will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation.

NYE Collectible Token/Pendant by Jennifer Kahn

Vermont artist Jennifer Kahn has been making jewelry for over a decade. Her designs fuse old and new, industrial and natural, urban and ethnic. She graduated from UVM with a BA in Art and English in 2001. Since then, she has been apprenticed to renowned jewelry artist Celie Fago, from whom she’s learned PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and metalsmithing. Jen has sold her work at craft shows, in galleries and has been featured in exhibits across the US, UK, and Japan. Her work has been in top jewelry magazines and several books; she most recently wrote a chapter for the popular book calledStitched Jewels“; her earrings are the cover design.

Ever since Jen attended her first Phish show, she has been taken by the community, the art and most of all, the music. As a maker of little things, she loves the merit badge concept and it inspired her to create a token. Since she works in metal and is excited for the New Years Run in NYC, a token, reminiscent of subway tokens, was an appealing idea. It’s made of pure silver and is the size of a quarter. Each one is hand made by Jen.

It comes in an archival coin display holder for $25, or as a pendant on black waxed cotton cord (16″ or 18″) with sterling ends and a sterling lobster clasp for $35. Or on a sterling chain for $45. In addition to the commemorative fish and apple, and “NYE, NYC, MSG”, all three show dates are inscribed among the lines on the edge. A limited edition of only 100 tokens will be made to order. This is definitely a collector’s item!

Jen is donating a portion of every sale to the Mockingbird Foundation because as important as art is to her, she couldn’t live without the music and she wants that to be true for future generations.

You can see more of Jen’s work on her website: www.jenniferkahnjewelry.com and purchase from her Etsy shop: www.jenkahn.etsy.com. You can also find her selling in Burlington, VT at various Holiday craft shows and on display at Trinket (28 Church St.) anytime.

About Wear Your Music

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.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Jewelry!

Here on the PhanArt Blog, we aim to present the Phish community with the most unique fan creations, all the while raising money for The Mockingbird Foundation. We continue this effort with Wear Your Music’s Rock ‘n’ Roll jewelry!

Hannah Garrison began crafting bracelets made from used guitar strings for musician friends and their families. Steve Bernstein was trying to find a unique way for guitar strings to garner advertising attention. He posted an ad on Craigslist that read: “Do you have any ideas for interesting products made with guitar strings?” Hannah contacted Steve and the Artist Bracelets were born.

Wear Your Music’s philosophy centers around love of music and an innate desire to contribute to more than their own pocketbooks. They also make jewelry, bracelets specifically, out of guitar strings donated from select artists. Each guitar string bracelet is handcrafted from recycled fine silver and guitar strings used and donated by a wide variety of artists (some below, more here). The bracelets can slip over your hand or a custom clasp is added.

The best way to measure your size is to use a string and measure the widest part of your hand when your hand is the smallest—like if you were reaching into a pickle jar. Measure the string in inches and this is your size!

The bracelets are packaged in recycled DVD cases with certificates of authenticity. Profits are donated to charities selected by the artists. Each bracelet is custom made upon order and production time can take up to three weeks before item ships.

With over 150 artists, Wear Your Music Artist’s Bracelets are a must have for any live music fan! Hannah adds, “Wear Your Music has become a brand that represents the intersection of music, fashion, and philanthropy.” Steve adds, “In growing our business, we won’t lose sight of our original goals: not only to do well, but to do good.”

Select artists of note include:

Al Schnier, Barry Sless, Bela Fleck, Ben Harper, Bill Nershi, Bob Weir, Bonnie Raitt, David Grisman, Brendan Bayliss, Michael Kang, Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, Chuck Garvey, Dave Schools, Derek Trucks, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Clapton, G Love, Gregg Allman, Jack Johnson, Mike Gordon, Jake Cinninger, Jim James, Jimmy Herring, John Bell, John Scofield, Jon Gutwillig, Keith Richards, Les Claypool, Marc Brownstein, Michael Franti, Oteil Burbridge, Pete Townshend, Reid Genauer, Rob Derhak, Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes, Willie Nelson, Xavier Rudd and Ziggy Marley – and thats a SMALL sampling of the Artist Bracelets they custom make.  Check them out at wearyourmusic.org
