Any musician who plays the guitar knows that guitar strings are a casualty that goes along with playing; they break, they wear down and they just don't last very long. Rather than finding themselves in landfills, Wear Your Music is turning discarded guitar strings from rock stars and famous musicians into bracelets. Not only do you get a little token from your favorite music icon, a portion of the proceeds also go towards a charity of their choice.
