British honour to Tony Iommi

Tony Iommi's heavy leather guitar straps… and bracelets!

 

Black Sabbath’s guitar legend has hired Rachael at Heavy Leather NYC (Heavyleathernyc.com) to make his new guitar straps, designed by Shirts & Destroy.

"The guitars I use are pretty heavy and it makes a huge difference when you're playing a long show to have a comfortable strap," says Iommi. "That they also look great is a real bonus!"

Iommi recently donated his used guitar strings to Wear Your Music, an organisation that turns used guitar strings into jewelry. All profits made from the sale of Tony's guitar strings will go to the Nordoff-Robbins charity. Having sliced off the ends of three fingers in a factory accident when first starting out Tony switched to very light gauge strings. These make his bracelets especially unique.

Rock Recycled Bracelets are hand-wrapped with sterling silver to create a one-of-a-kind bangle style bracelet. Each bracelet uses a different number and color of strings, depending on what is available at the time of purchase. They do not have the artists initials on them and are not soldered. For this, and the option to add a clasp, see the Classic Style.

Purchase your bracelet on WearYourMusic.org

And for those who wasn’t able to catch Tony’s interview on the BBC TV's "Hard Talk" other day, watch the whole event on Youtube video:
