Seth Maranuk

I became fascinated with the crystalline realm at a very young age. My childhood fascination was the "vein" of crystals in the forest near my home in Pennsylvania's Pocono mountains. I knew I wanted to spend my life working with these amazing models of perfection created by nature. When I was 18 I started my career as a jewelry designer and craftsman, and my focus has consistently been on going where no one else has gone, pushing the limits and allowing my creativity to take the wheel. When I bought a bag of tumbled stone chips and found one to be shaped just like a guitar pick, the wheels in my head started turning, I knew I was on to something. But the polished rounded edge slid of the guitar strings in an awkward way, there was no precision control. So I took it to the grinding wheel and after experimenting with various different materials and designs, I eventually honed in on my hallmark design, a carefully shaped pick with just the right contour that allows for precision picking. collection

        My father in law has everything. I use this website and find the best gifts every year. This was no exception. He never owned anything like this and I love that he puts how the guitar pick was made.

            Comments about OBSIDIAN ARROWHEAD GUITAR PICK:

            The order was processed promptly and it arrived as scheduled. I am not sure this can even be used as a guitar pick. Not only is it much smaller that the photo, it is thick, not at all like most guitar picks. For the size, it is very overpriced. Picture needs to be more
            realistic of how the pick actually looks.

                  This was a great gift for my husband.. who is a collector or arrowheads AND a guitar player. He hasn't used it yet but is a great conversation piece among fellow guitar players.

                            The guitar pick was a lil tiny, hopefully he can use it. Nice design though.

                                    As a professional archaeologist, I can confirm that the "arrowhead" is of quality flaking and appears authentic for a projectile point replica. My boyfriend attempted to play his guitar with the pick as soon as he opened the present. The pick appeared difficult to handle and the resulting sound was low in quality. Unique gift but doesn't effectively perform.
