Finger Strumming

Strum a few chords on the music lover's heartstrings with this hand-twisted ring. The artist, Christopher Stiles, sources the recycled, sometimes broken guitar strings from music stores and guitar shops around his California home, which he twists into attractive bows tipped with sterling silver-plated beads. The bow is held together with the "ball end" found on the end of the guitar strings. Handmade in California.

Christopher Stiles

created by

Christopher Stiles

While studying abroad in England in his youth, Christopher Stiles noticed an art gallery selling hand-blown glass in the window. The experience compelled him to seek new ways to express his ideas through hand-formed objects.

Upon returning to the U.S., Stiles earned a Bachelor's degree in fine art, with a focus in ceramics from California State University, Long Beach. After graduation, he apprenticed with a master mold maker to further hone his skills.

Stiles' attention to detail begins with the design. When he reflects upon something he's seen, he unravels the concept to its core, then turns it on its head. His goal is to examine those forms we take for granted and reduce them to their most rudimentary aspects. Stiles finishes each piece asking more questions than revealing answers - it's simply the nature of his work.

Stiles ponders the little things with big questions, mulling over thoughts like, "What does it mean to be a salt and pepper shaker - to simply season food?" His very real questions produce extraordinarily unique pieces that offer both form and function.

Stiles highlights the simplicities he sees in everyday objects to produce organic sculptures. Ultimately, his work connects us not just to an image or an object, but to one another through the things we touch, share and integrate into our lives.

Suggested pros and cons don't apply. See other reviews...I did. No surprises. For me the only problem is washing my hands, which I do a lot. Seems durable. I just want it to last.

    This ring is amazing. So cute and goes with everything. I received it as a gift and it is now one of my most treasured items. Definitely worth the money. Does get caught on clothes, hair, etc., but really not that big of an issue. Very unique! Great gift or even to buy for yourself. LOVE this ring!!

      Comments about Guitar String Rings:

      This was a gift to my sister and she loves it. It does get caught occasionally because of the design, as many have already mentioned. The only concern I had was whether or not it might tarnish since it's mix metal

        Comments about Guitar String Rings:

        Funny how this particular review is asking me questions like this is an instrument! No, this is a ring, and a wonderful one at that. It is made from high quality guitar string, is astonishingly comfortable. It holds its shape perfectly, even though I have caught it on my clothes, hair, etc. a few times (I'm a bit of a clutz). I love it and so do all of my friends and even strangers compliment me on it!

              I purchased this as a gift for my granddaughter. We both appreciate that it's recycled. She likes it for the uniqueness. We wonder whose guitar it came from.
