How did Rock N Roll Jewelry start?

In the fall of 1991, Peter Holmbeck braided up the first Bass-let. We'll let him tell you about it:


"I guess the story really starts though when I changed the strings on my new but very used beat up generic Hondo brand candy apple red bass guitar I got for my 13th birthday 8/11/1986.  I knew there had to be something I could do with those old strings.  For a few years I saved all my used strings in a old cardboard box waiting for the eureka moment. 
My dad who made jewelry out of crazy farm stuff (he crafted his own wedding ring by hammering a $.05 nickel from a flat disk with a hole in it to a thick band perfectly fit to his finger still going strong after 46 years of marriage) taught me how to make jewelry and how to braid. 
With that knowledge I braided some thick leather into a bracelet.  I made the ends from copper wire and solder.  Later while wearing this leather bracelet I figured if I could braid this thick leather (similar in size to a bass e string) I could braid those old bass strings.  That was the eureka moment.
On a cold night fall of 1991 in my dads farm shop I attached three bass e strings to his shop vice and started to braid.  It took a while, but with determination, blistered fingers, and hand cramps I forced those strings into a good looking tight braid.  I made a similar copper wire and solder ends to give it a finished look. When it was done, I thought it looked incredible and imagined what other jewelry items would look cool out of the rest of my strings.  The very next day I made the worlds first Guitar St-ring Ring
, a daisy necklace, and a cross necklace all from those old bass guitar strings.  Within a week I had a dozens of designs. 
We have come along way since that first bass-let® bracelet.  We still have it, preserved for posterity on display here at our shop in Orlando FL. 
Thank you for your interest.
Sincerely,
Peter Holmbeck"
