Hello Diane, thanks for the friend add and for sharing this cool site re jewelry made from old musical instrument strings. My sister and niece are both jewelry makers so I sent the link to them as well. I have LOTS of old instrument wire so maybe they will be inspired to create something with it...CanJoe*John
Myself and the guitar shop where I used to work have always saved the string ferrules. My thoughts are to do a 24K gold plate on them for making jewelery. This wouldn't be difficult and would be to prevent corrosion.
