RESTRUNG JEWELRY

ReStrung, a fusion of artist Naomi Celestin's biggest passions - art, music and giving back to the community. Founded in 2011, Celestin got the idea to make jewelry with guitar strings after looking at some old strings at a friend's house. After realizing that musicians break strings often and change out their strings regularly, she began to call on all th musicians she knew and asked them to save their strings. After experimenting, Naomi Celestin came up with a technique that incorporates her signature wire-work, used guitar strings, and semi-precious stones. ReStrung donates a portion of their profits to The New Orleans Musicians Clinic to keep the cultural community of NOLA vibrant and unique.

ASTALI 

ASTALI Jewelry is designed and hand-made by Los Angeles-based artist, Shannon Astali De Jong. A designer by day, and a rocker by night culminated in the birth of her line attributed to an alter-ego she named Jack Astali. As the line evolved, its subversive, rebellious nature emerged. Hallmarks of the ASTALI designs include rugged and unexpected materials- bullet casings, fool's gold, snake vertebrae, buffalo teeth, vintage peepshow tokens, porcupine quills, reclaimed wood, and much more. Shannon Astali De Jong finds her inspiration equally at Natural History museums and flea markets.
