OUR STORY

We are Jenny Mann & Tim Barbour, the creators of Strung. Strüng is a music inspired jewelry line made from authentic guitar strings and “Born in the USA”. We are no newbies to the music industry, having toured in a rock band for the last 10 years playing over 2,000 shows and logging almost a million miles on the road. We know a lot about being a struggling artist and putting it all on the line to chase our dreams. And we know first hand how music can change your life because it changed ours. 


 Our story is very unique, In July of 2014 while on tour with our band, Blameshift, an idea was born. While Tim was changing his guitar strings, I noticed that his used strings resembled a bracelet.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 show in Clifton, NJ. That same night we completely sold out of every bracelet. We were so excited. Pretty soon, our fans were buying more bracelets than our CD’s and I was spending hours after every show hand crafting these one of a kind bracelets. 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.

ADVOCATES FOR MUSIC EDUCATION

As we set off on this journey of making guitar string jewelry inspired by some of our favorite songs, we realized that the idea of giving back to music was what was driving us. We wanted to make sure that every kid got the same opportunity we did, to learn and love music. We decided that our mission for Strung was going to be, help save music. We set off to Washington DC in the spring of 2018 with the organization NAMM to advocate to our state congressman and senators about the importance of a well rounded education that includes music. We have become strong advocates for music education with a percentage of all sales donated to the cause. 


 We also work hand in hand with many other well known charities to raise money for other causes that are very important to us. These charities include, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Tackle Kids Cancer and many more.
