One saturday, a day off from her job as a nurse, Amanda decided to clean up. Living in a house full of musicians, there was always a stray guitar string laying around. She put all of the loose stings in a box in the closet. While she would usually just leave them there, that day she decided she wanted to try to make something out of them.
She grabbed a couple of guitar strings, crystals and wire and started working with them until she had two bangle bracelets. She posted the picture of her craft on her personal Facebook page. People went nuts over it. On the first day, twenty seven people asked to buy them. Amanda was shocked by the response and decided to run with the it.
She says her real test was her three daughters opinions. When they all loved it she took the next step and decided to start selling them. Her sister, a gift shop owner, called her and asked her to bring over a dozen pieces to sell. The bangles sold quickly and sales reps were very interested in the product line.
