    Comments about GUITAR STRING BRACELETS:

    Purchased black & silver for a friend who shared concert tickets with me. She loved them, and I thought they were so cool I got some for myself too. I usually don't wear bracelets but these were very comfortable and I completely forgot they were on while I was wearing them.

      Comments about GUITAR STRING BRACELETS:

      I bought several as a gift set and ended up keeping one for myself! Plan to order more -- these look great as single bracelets but would be super stylish and easy to wear in multiple colors - 3 or 4 together. Rock!

              Comments about GUITAR STRING BRACELETS:

              Just a footnote - Now that we have had this for a few weeks. After only 3 or 4 times of wearing this, the black color has begun to wear off. I really thought this was going to last and be a great thing. I agree with earlier review, skip the colors and go with the natural, unpainted one. Maybe it will last longer as the black truly has not. So sad...

                This is a very simple yet very unique accessory for anyone to wear, male or female. Even my non jewelry wearing husband likes it and is enjoying it. I am always on the look out for things that nobody else has and this fits the bill for sure. It is so unique and different and looks like it will last a very long time due to it's quality. I bought the black one but now am thinking of getting another color for me. It makes a very simple statement as it is not bold or full of bling. Very cool and fun for the Rock Star in your life.

                  I ordered the black bracelet and it met the "cool" factor for my teenage son who plays guitar. It seems to be comfortable, well made and holds its shape. He's been wearing it every day since Christmas.

                    The teenage girls who received that bracelets either played an instrument and/or love music so they thought the guitar string concept made the simple bracelet extra fun.

                    Purchased these bracelets for a gift and loved them so much I bought some for myself. Great, easy, everyday style. Am disappointed that the color is fading already after only a few wears. Would recommend skipping the colors and just buying the silver to avoid losing the color.
