About… The Guitarwrist
Founded in 2017 by UK music industry executive, Ian Rendall, the Guitarwrist is a not for profit, sustainability, and charity fund raising initiative which encourages artists to donate their played strings, when they come to restring, and up-cycles these into handmade items of jewellery with 100% of the profits going to the artist’s charity of choice.
To date the brand has raised over £100,000 for over 50 charities and saved over 9,000 sets of strings ending in landfill. Within a short space of time over 275 artists have joined the initiative including Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Stereophonics, Luke Combs, and Sam Fender.
