NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Musical instruments don’t last forever, so what do you do on the day the music dies. A woman from Nashville says you find a way to bring everything back to life in a whole new way.
Emily Winters is working on a project called “Strings for Hope”. It’s all about resurrection for old, worn and worn out guitar strings.
They come straight from Winters art studio in Germantown. They made music now sing a different tune like necklaces and bracelets.
“Yeah, seeing the beauty of what’s broken and trashed and then seeing the beauty of what it can potentially be is inspiring,” Winters said.
Emily’s studio hidden away on Taylor Street is part of Nashville’s Art Collective. The strings were all given to him for free by musicians in Nashville looking to give them another purpose. Some profits serve an even more important purpose of helping those struggling with addictions, people like Smiley Moore of Nashville.
“I’m a recovering drug addict,” Winters said.
Those days, now four years into her past, since Emily offered her a full time job here. She picked it up quickly and now sees the beauty in things she could never see before.
Now it’s the realization that she can do something that people really want to buy. It’s the broken-to-restored link that’s evident here, thank Emily for making this possible.
