Stories of the Strings - Sister of the bride

I want to express my most sincere gratitude to Jewel Bandy and to Pearlynne Gourlie for sharing this amazing Story of the Strings attached to custom jewelry pictured below.

I am so happy that I was able to provide you with a means by which your father's essence could be with you on such a special occasion.

My sister’s wedding was coming up and in memory of our dad (who had passed away when we were young) and his passion for guitar, you gave me an idea for a creative lifetime memory for my mom, my sister and me. 

My sister carried my dad’s guitar until her son needed to upgrade from it. Then, in keeping with the family’s passion for music, our dad’s guitar was passed onto my son. 

I thought; how perfect to make a bracelet for my sister, an anklet for myself (the bride’s sister) and earrings for the mother of the bride from the treasured guitar strings of our father’s guitar. Our mother was going to give away her daughter in her father’s stead at the wedding. As the maid of honour, it was such a pleasure to be able to gift these guitar string treasures to my mom and my sister. All made possible by Do Re Mi Bracelets etc.

Thank you so much!
