ST GEORGE — Do you love music and want to express it in a harmonious way? This business has all the success with a wide variety of guitar pick earrings.
Mary Love, owner and founder of Groupie Love, told St. George News: “In the process, we’re just learning, and I’m dreaming big.”
With her husband as a guitarist and her as a groupie, Love said she often attended his live shows. One day she decided to make guitar picks his earrings out of his Fender and Gibson guitar picks. As she continued to rock her designs, her friends, family, and concertgoers raved about them. She set up shop in her home kitchen and started crafting as her hobby, selling racks of her earnings at music shows.
“Music is a global language,” said Love. “It’s unbelievable how recognizable they are. There’s still not a day when we don’t get complimented on wearing them.
After researching the manufacturers of Fender guitar picks, Love found D’Andrea USA, the company that first invented the first plastic guitar picks in 1922.
