Made in Tennessee

Nashville natives Stephanie and Dustin Headrick transform common cents into uncommon guitar picks. The couple started with a collection of silver quarters and half-dollars, but didn't really want to watch them sit around for 50 years and collect dust. It's well known with musicians that silver coin guitar picks have been around for a hundred years, but actually getting your hands on one is a rare thing. So, the savvy numismatists began hand-honing the coins into picks and immediately loved the tinny sound they produced. After gaining popularity at local craft fairs, they began experimenting with other materials: brass, bronze, copper, aluminum, hardwood, and even horn. To date, they've sold tens of thousands of handmade guitar picks to musicians all over the world, with many customers becoming avid collectors.
