Two-Bar Blues

In search of a unique shape, Naomi Celestin pinched either end of a springy circle of bronze and steel guitar string, creating an organic pod that cradles a collection of turquoise-dyed Howlite beads. Naomi's primary interest is art, but she was born into a family of New Orleans musicians. So she combined her interests and influences in her reclaimed guitar string jewelry designs. Her wearable riffs on blue and gold make striking accessories for music and design lovers alike. Includes hypoallergenic, gold-plated ear wires. Handmade in New Orleans by Naomi and a small team of women artisans.

Louisiana

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.
