Electric Picks is modern jewelry with a rock n’ roll attitude, inspired by the freedom and glamor of rock music. It’s for the renegades, romantics and visionaries. Each bracelet is intricately crafted and one of a kind. Seeking but never finding jewelry that inspired her as much as music did, designer Mj Barton set out on her own and brought Electric Picks to life.
The guitar picks are all either custom or vintage. Mj loves to scour vintage stores for inspiration. Using materials from her travels all around the world (Istanbul, Athens, Barcelona, Morocco, Thailand, Tibet, Monaco, Brazil, India etc) Mj mixes gemstones and authentic guitar picks to create one of a kind looks that aspire to be as timeless as music is.
Mj, a charity event planner turned jewelry designer, played classical piano for 12 years and has been designing jewelry since her day-care days. She fused these 2 loves into Electric Picks Rock Jewelry. She is still on the board of 2 charities and heavily involved in children charity causes. She is influenced by what she calls a “gypsy lifestyle”. She was born and raised in Chicago, but at 19 set out on her own and has lived in Arizona, Miami Beach, Dublin Ireland, and now resides in New York City. “I’m influenced so much by travel and culture. The Indian influences from Arizona, the Celtics from Dublin, Art Deco from Miami, I carry them all with me.”
I recently connected with Mj and she let me pick a bracelet to review. I chose the Purple Rain bracelet which is made of dyed Buffalo Turquoise, a custom guitar pick, and a white Czech crystal. It arrived in a little velveteen pouch and looks even better in person. It is such a great piece and since my husband is a guitarist, we are especially fond of it. The purple for us gives it the Jimi vibe. There are so many great bracelets to choose from for women and men. If you are looking for a quality, unique bracelet then you have to take a look at Electric Picks. It is a great present for any guitarist or rock fan. They will even customize a bracelet just for you, they can use your guitar pick or turn just about anything into one. A special hotel room key can be made into a pick and then into a bracelet, now that is cool!
