Here's some rings I've been making out of guitar strings. If there's enough interest, I'll offer them for sale in the Classified section. These rings are made out of silver and gold plated strings, flat wound nickle, phosphor bronze, and regular round wound steel strings. I can make them any size.
What do you think they might go for? We've sold the gold and silver plated ones for $25.00. Thanks for your input.

if you can unwind it and it becomes a string again so in gigs if you break a string you have extra on your fingers!!!

Lol, it's just a turk's head knot. Nice job though, it's tricky to make with any sort of metal or wire.

Was there not a thread on this yesterday?

+1 if you came in this thread expecting a noob TS asking why the strings on his cheap-ass guitar make such an awful noise when he gets to the 5th fret or higher.

So do we get our $25.00 back when they corrode and look ugly?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

I wouldn't pay much more than a pack of strings costs

That's pretty badass! I'd buy some if you asked for a little less.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

Pretty good, I wouldn't wear one but I'm sure a lot would.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?
Who am I? I'm a titan so be expectin' a clash.

Lol, good luck. It's tricky, but if you have a few hours and some patience you can learn it.

Wouldn't these things eventually cause rash and stuff on your hands?

If not, I'd totally buy one. Or more.

Thanks for your input guys. You're all right. They will wear out. They are costume jewelry at best. I'm guessing using bronze strings might turn your finger green, metal strings will tarnish, etc. That's why we tried the gold and silver plate strings, they don't react to skin allergies, or tarnish as fast.
I tie mine around a ring mandrel to get the right size. There are different ways to tie the knot, my way may not be the easy way for you.
Because the rings are flexable, they can fit a bit larger finger than a regular ring.
The rings in the picture are available. For the UG'ers that might want one, send me a P.M. with your ring size, and we'll see what can be done. If there's enough interest, I'll sell them in the Classifieds. Around 15 scooties for the regular metal strings, 20 scooties for the gold or silver strings sound fairer?
Thanks again for your help with this idea.

I have to be completely honest, I probably wouldn't pay more than $5 for a ring and maybe $10 for a braclet. I just don't see the quality in them. If you get a good procedure and technique going, they shouldn't be that hard to make at all. I mean, that is with all the problems of skin reactions and rust getting figured out which I think would be cheap fixes. But hey, I hope it works out for ya! That's just my opinion.
