Spring approaches and Gritty charges onward. We’ve got some shows coming up, with a special focus on The Muddy Roots Music Festival this August in Cookeville, TN. We’ll divulge more on that later, but this spirit possessed the bench and a cigar box guitar charm was born.
It all starts with some fire…
A tidy box forms.
Some pieces get cut and soldered to the box.
The unit assumes the basics of shape and form.
The charm sports all of its attachments with some crafty soldering and spends a little time drowning in the solution that takes some of that shine away. This is kind of like the metallic version of a nose powdering.
Finally, steel wool removes the dried solution and gives way to that perfectly filthy-clean patina.
And thus births the combination of two great loves: music and jewelry! Expect some similar-minded pieces to be forged in the very near future.
