Upcycled Guitar String Earrings {review + giveaway}

{Howdy y'alls!}
Well, it's time for another review post! A couple days ago I was sent two pairs of amazingly cute earrings from Bethany at Fret Knot Jewelry.
So firstly. In case you didn't notice already...does the title of this post say anything at all to you?
(Excuse me while I go freak out about the awesomeness of the concept of jewelry made from old guitar strings.)
Is that just insanely awesome or what??
I don't know about y'all, but I simply adore anything guitar related. Since I'm a hobbyist guitar player, the Fret Knot Jewelry shop couldn't help but capture my attention as soon as I saw it!

I was sent the Tall Triangle earrings. One pair for me to review, the other for a giveaway for y'all! (Which we'll get to later!)

These earrings are super lightweight - therefore, super easy to wear. (Ignore my weird-looking eye here please)

I love the simple retro style they have. Geometric jewelry has become increasingly popular it seems, so far this year. I don't follow fads and trends for the heck of it, but if there happens to be something I already liked, in the trend, than hey, it's all good! 
Forgetting trends though, I don't think I've ever seen jewelry made from guitar strings before. So I'd say this is a pretty different, unique business.
Bethany, the owner of Fret Knot Jewelry, was such a dear about doing the review, and corresponding with her was a pleasure.  Thank you Bethany!

So overall, these earrings are an awesome piece of jewelry! I like the raw, hand-crafted look they have; and I think it's just so cool to be wearing strings from an instrument that could've been played by some really good bluegrass guitarist, or flatpicker...I mean, that might sound kind of silly, but really, you never know!
Check out the Fret Knot Jewelry shop here! Bethany has a myriad of upcycled guitar
string jewelry pieces; from earrings to bracelets, rings, and more! I'm sure you'll love her shop.
You can also check out the Fret Knot Jewelry blog to find cool 'behind-the-scenes' posts on how Bethany makes her jewelry, and "like" Fret Knot Jewelry on Facebook! 
And now, on to the fun part for all you awesome readers!
Yes, this blog is having another giveaway! Bethany generously sent a second pair of Triangle earrings, just for you guys! (You can see them in the photo directly above) Be sure to enter!
Have a blessed day,
Note: I was provided these items from Fret Knot Jewelry in exchange for my honest opinion.
