Fancy Picking

From "I Got You Babe" to "Under Pressure," music is full of famous duets. Reclaimed guitar jewelry designer Naomi Celestin and artisan pick maker Dustin Headrick struck up their own when they met at a trade show and combined their crafts to create these unique mixed metal pick pendants. Each one-of-a-kind composition features one of Dustin's signature picks made from reclaimed antique trays and platters, paired with Naomi's guitar string ball ends, findings, and gold-filled or sterling chains. The design highlights the decorative metalwork of the original trays and platters, making a striking statement piece for any music fan. Handmade in New Orleans by Naomi and a small team of women artisans.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Art and history are Naomi Celestin's primary passion but, as fate would have it, she was born into a family of talented New Orleans musicians. So in the NOLA spirit of innovation, she combined her interests and influences in her reclaimed guitar string jewelry designs. Armed with a Bachelors in Archaeology with a minor in metalwork, Naomi landed her first job at the Acadiana Arts Council promoting artists and musicians in her native Louisiana. During that time, she continued to create jewelry as a hobby, developing her signature style of wirework. One day, she saw some old strings lying about her uncle's house and asked if she could have them. She incorporated the castoff strings into her wirework designs and saw that she was onto a good idea. Realizing that musicians change strings often and just throw them away, she began calling on all the musicians she knew to ask them to save the strings. The idea took off, and before long, both music lovers and fashion-forward women began asking for her designs.
