Delicate Pick Cord in Black

From our friends at Cords for Music...

A Holiday Gift That Gives a Portion of Each Sale to Charities That Help Fund Music Education in Public Schools & Underserved Communities

It's bold to wear your heart on your sleeve; it speaks to people. Now, Cords For Music gives you a variety of music-themed finery through which you can make a heartfelt statement and truly make a difference. The company's stunning selection of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces embody music's profound power to effect cultural change through Cords For Music being the first fashion brand to focus on music education as its social component.

The company's Core Collection conjures the feeling of awe every child has when they first lay their eyes on a guitar. The designs are refined and iconic, themed around the most intimate tool of rock n' roll, the guitar pick. The collection is made in America of high quality raw materials such as silver, leather, and a vibrant assortment of cotton colors.

Each stunning piece sends a message: Music has the power to shape our future. With this in mind, CFM wishes to empower children through supporting music education.

Cords for Music is a social enterprise that gives a portion of each sale to charities that help fund music education initiatives in public schools and underserved communities. Of all the art forms, music is the most inherent, making it also the most effective for shaping a young person's thinking process and confidence, as well as building their leadership skills.

CFM's first major partnership is with Education through Music (ETM), a New York based non-profit with an affiliate in Los Angeles. Education Through Music partners with inner-city schools to provide all students with music as a core subject, and to create school communities that value the arts. ETM's mission is to promote the use of music in schools as a means of enhancing students' academic performance and general development. The ETM model currently serves 25,000 students in almost 50 inner-city schools in New York City, and their model reaches another 10,000 children through the work of their licensed affiliate organization in Los Angeles.

Nicholas Coblence, a New York City-based brand strategist by trade, and arts administrator by training founded Cords For Music in 2013. With a desire to combine his two passions, Nicholas believed that he could create products that would eventually help bring inspiration into the lives of children who otherwise might not be able to have it. In summer of 2014, Cords For Music launched its first collection of Pick Cords, guitar pick shaped sterling silver jewelry pieces tied to the wrist using cotton or leather cords.
