What are the string jewelry made out of?

Each string jewelry is uniquely handcrafted. We use various metal strings from violins, violas, cellos, guitars, and harps. Since we rely on the generous donation of strings from our donors, we often do not know the exact metal composition of each string. Each string is wound with various types of metal. Our earring posts and backings are made of a hypoallergenic metal alloy. If you have a metal allergy, please contact us for more information.

What types of strings do you accept?

We do not accept nylon strings. Nylon strings can be found in the certain guitars, ukuleles, and toy instruments. We only accept metal strings from the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, double bass, electric bass, guitar (lower metal strings only), folk instruments (such as zither, zheng, etc.) If you are unsure and your instrument is not listed above, please contact us and we will be happy to let you know if we will accept your strings.
