Downhere guitar string bracelets and necklaces - OPEN HOUSE!!

*** Update - Online store now open at gslavender.etsy.com ***

So if you read my wife's blog you'll notice this is pretty much an exact replica. I've been getting lots of comments online and from friends about our guitar string jewelry and figured it was time to make them available to our local friends.

We are also working on an online store and hope to have that ready to go early next week. We'll post about it once it's up! Now onto the post!!

"On February 17 & 18, Glenn and I are hosting an open house from 7:30pm to 9:30pm each night to sell our guitar string jewelry. We make each piece from guitar strings used in performance by the band. The clasps are sterling silver. Each piece comes with a tag with some written detail as to where the string was played, when, and/or by whom.

In celebration of downhere's recent Juno Award nomination we are also going to have their nominated album, "Ending is Beginning" available for purchase and a limited number of two other albums as well.

If you live in the area Cambridge, Ontario, we would LOVE for you to stop by! If you don't have our address, send me an email or facebook message, give me a call, or leave a comment here with a piece of your contact information that will allow me to pass our address onto you! If you know anyone who enjoys downhere's music and might be interested in stopping by, please pass this information along to them!"

These bracelets are all made from electric or acoustic guitar
strings. The beads you see are the anchors normally
attached to the strings and holding the string onto the guitar.


In the middle is a bass string bracelet. To the right
and left are bass string necklaces. The bass strings
and anchors are bigger than the acoustic and electric.


This picture focuses on a bass guitar string necklace.



downhere's newest release,
just nominated for a Juno Award


This was a digital release only although copies
were made for sale at the band's merch table.
This is an album for die-hard fans who want
to hear rough recordings of demos of songs
that weren't chosen for any albums.

That's so cool! The band must go through a lot of guitar strings!
I like the beads on them.

And congratulations on the Juno nomination! I checked what other albums were nominated, and yours is the best out of them all, I'd say.

Sweet... I've been meaning to get a bracelet... I'll look forward to the online store! (I'm afraid the drive to the open house would be something like 40 hours!)

I would like to try and make it to the open house, as we're not too far from Cambridge, but will need directions. How is it best to find these out?

This is a great idea. Like Carla, I'm too far away to make the open house. However, the online store sounds promising. I am glad that you are giving the band's supporters this opportunity to show our appreciation in a tangible way.

Bracelets are cool . An online store sounds better . Where's the
profit of these things going ? It'd
be great if it was for charity . Like that of the Compassion Art Project . God bless you all . Congrates on all your musical success . Keep spreading the messages of God .
