- the story
The Forgetful Musician
Luxuriously weighted and lightly textured, this sterling silver guitar pick is hand sculpted by artist Laura Lobdell. The guitar pick necklace is inspired by Lobdell's musician friends who were
always losing their guitar picks and asking the
audience if they could borrow quarters to use instead. Not only is this necklace stylish and edgy, but it also is a real working guitar pick. Lobdell worked with musicians to create a pick that produced the right sound. And the hole doubles as a thumb grip. Cord is waxed cotton. Made in New York City.
