EPISODE 25  

Hi! I'm Anik, the artist and owner behind Do Re Mi Bracelets etc. located in Gatineau QC, Canada.

My passion is reclaiming discarded instrument strings (guitar, piano, violin, etc.) and upcycling them into beautiful jewelry and gifts.

I am a woman, an LGBTQ ally, the wife of a Metis man, a French Canadian and more!

Core values for me in my business are respect, authenticity, inclusiveness and working in as eco-friendly a way as I can.

I don't know if you're a musician like me, but one thing I know for sure is that you know a musician or two.

Everyone knows a musician!!

When you start to think about how many varieties of stringed instruments that exist in the world, you can only imagine the TONS of waste created in landfills when the broken and discarded strings are thrown away. That's where I saw an opportunity to do my part in helping Mother Nature, one string at a time.

But as someone who likes to think outside the box, making the same boring thing, is not my style. I love making unique and creative designs. But if, like me, attention to detail is important to you, in my shop you will find a REFINED TAKE ON RECLAIMED.

Do you have a guitar pick from your favourite musician? Do you have strings from your son, mother, partner, or husband's musical instrument? Do you have a special musician who passed away? I can create a keepsake item that is truly personal by using their strings or parts of their instrument. I will treat all the materials received, with extreme respect in the creation of this special item.

Having the opportunity to hear the stories from my customers. Hearing about the music and the musicians who touched their lives is a true pleasure. Being able to honour those memories is a privilege.

I would love to have the opportunity to work with you and to create something that helps connect you to the music and the memories that you cherish.
