PROJECTS and Groups
We've partnered with designer Michelle Dall'Acqua to create official ES:MO necklaces and bracelets made from guitar strings. They're beautifully crafted and look great even if you don't know what they're made of (so not just for guitar lovers!). Please specify whether you are ordering the necklace or bracelet, and whether you want the 18" or 20" necklace or the small, medium (7") or large (8") bracelet. Thanks and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or prefer to do an etransfer.
