When you change to a new set of strings, you may not have to throw the old ones away. Here's some uses I've found for old bass/guitar strings: -Jewelry, i have a necklace with bass string segments and beads wrapped around it, the main wire is the core of a string. The artist also makes bracelets and ear rings, typically using guitar strings. -I made an awesome cat toy by wrapping a small segment of pipe cleaner through the ring at the end. Also works fine on it's own as would any other string, but be sure to hold it by the string end and use the end with the ring outward because the string end can be pointy... -Picture frame wire. I have a picture hanging on my wall, i used a bass string instead of hanger wire on the back of the frame. Works great. Have any of yall found other interesting uses for old strings?
