Violin and Viola Mutes for Sale!

QUESTION: When does a mute shout out loud with color and sparkle?

ANSWER: When I make them to do so, of course!

As a musician, I sometimes have to use a mute, a tool that is affixed to the strings, on the bridge of various stringed instruments to quiet or "mute" the sound. I might use one on my violin for a certain orchestra piece, or just to practice so that my family can do their activities around the house in a more quiet atmosphere.

Cobalt Blue Mute 

Multicolored Mute

Eight months ago I started making glitter and glitter rhinestone mutes for the violin as well as viola. Not many people know that I make them in my free time, so I thought it would be a good topic for a post.  I make them in different colors:

  • light green
  • grass green
  • hunter green
  • cobalt blue
  • aqua blue
  • ocean blue
  • dark/sea blue
  • electric blue
  • teal
  • periwinkle
  • dark purple
  • violet
  • fuchsia 
  • baby pink
  • cherry red
  • carrot
  • copper
  • gold
  • rose gold
  • frostbite silver 
  • multicolored
  • black and gold mix*
  • gold*

* = chunk glitter
All other glitters that don't have "*" next to them, are superfine glitters.

If requested, I make them with rhinestones lined up on the top.

For rhinestones, I am working with the colors, Pink, Silver, Red, Yellow, Green, Teal and Blue. More colors are available upon request.

In addition to being a musician, I also enjoy crafting visual art. Making my Bling for String Mute Designs is a way to bring my music and crafting together. If you are interested in purchasing one of my mute designs I invite you to visit my Bling for Strings Store for more information and pricing.
