Our goal for More Than Music is to create beautiful items from old or used music based materials. By using guitar strings that would otherwise be thrown away we have designed a fun, creative line of jewelry that is expanding every day. Each of these creations are hand crafted with care.
The ideas for many of our jewelry pieces come from our travels, history, time or customer request. The one you see here is our Tree of Life. In Irish and Scottish folklore the Oak tree is a gateway from this world and the next. A reminder that many of the things that make us who we are lay beneath the surface and in our history. The oak also represents wisdom within its towering strength.
A letter from the creator:
Dear Jewelry and Music Lover, I am so happy you found us and sincerely thank you for your support! I’d like to start by introducing myself. I’m Michaela Kelton, a visual artist in central Texas and my husband, Michael, is a musician. It’s probably easy to see how I came to make music inspired art. As you will discover when you browse, many of the jewelry items are knots. These are inspired by my interested in Irish and Scottish history and folklore. By adding other elements and embellishments, we can steer the theme of each piece. Another big motif you will see is our interpretation of the dreamcatcher. This design is influenced by traveling with my grandparents and their love and support of southwestern art and artists. I have always been drawn to unique jewelry, which is why I have worked to make each piece as beautiful and unique as each person who will wear them.
