Music is the universal language. It is one thing that connects us all. Strüng was formed out of a love for music and the desire to share that love and inspiration with the world.
Hi, I’m Jenny Mann, the creator of Strüng. I’m no newbie to the music industry. My guitarist, Tim Barbour and I have spent the last 10 years as independent touring musicians, traveling over 500,000 miles and playing over 2,000 shows. I know everything there is to know about being a struggling artist and putting it all on the line to chase my dreams. I also know first hand how music can change your life, because it has changed mine.
In July of 2014 while traveling to play the Vans Warped Tour with my band, Blameshift, an idea was born. While my guitarist Tim was changing his guitar strings for a show, I noticed that his strings, when wrapped up in a circular fashion, resembled a bracelet. I had seen these strings laying around the bus for years but it wasn’t until this particular moment that Tim & I realized that we could actually use guitar strings for another purpose. With a little creativity, time and a whole lot of love, we created Strüng.
In mid July, we sold our first “Strüng” Bracelet at a Blameshift show in Clifton, NJ. That same night we completely sold out of every bracelet I had made and I rushed to make more for our show the next night. We were so excited. Pretty soon, our fans were buying more bracelets than CD’s and T-shirts and I was spending hours after every show hand crafting these one of a kind bracelets. Fans from all over the country were coming to shows telling us that our bracelets were bringing them good luck and most of all made them happy. As the demand for Strüng continued to rise, we realized we had created something truly special that touched people deeper than an ordinary piece of jewelry.
Now it’s time to share Strüng with the world. Join us on this journey. Get Inspired. Get Strüng.
Jenny & Tim
