Not as stylish but it worked! Kept the plectrum close and... [jaydventer, Nov 04 2009]

...and when I'm done i can just slide the bead back and the plectrum is part of the bracelet again. [jaydventer, Nov 04 2009]

       Stops you losing your picks, but what if you lose the bracelet?

       Hmmmm, I don't actually no.

       It could be made from false precious metals.

       Attach the pleccy to the bracelet by means of a rectracting chain, so if you drop it, it doesn't ping off into the unknown.

       You lost another one? After that handy tip I gave you last time?   

       [Who posted that long string of text above? Whoever you are, just so you know, long strings screw up the layout on some browsers, like mine.]

       I already have a pick holder on my guitar. This'd be better if it could hold more than 2 picks, but I wouldn't wear one 'cos I wouldn't wear any sort of bracelet.

       btw if [StealthMonkey] is reading this please note the correct spelling of Plectrum.   

       As for the idea, I very much like it. There are all manner of lockets and bracelets that are of a size that could incorporate ya pleccies. +

       Good idea, it would stop them rattling round in my change and annoying me when I pay for something with coins.   

       One minor adjustment though: for true guitar player authenticity, I think it should be made of masking tape rather than metal...

       pic 1, 2 and 3 shows a design a came up with, using string, 2 beads and a plectrum.
One bead holds a string attached to the plectrum in place, so that it is part of the bracelet, but once you slide the bead towards the other way, the string and plectrum becomes detached from the bracelet, which allows you to use it and also prevents you from losing it while playing. When you're done, you just slide the bead back into place and it becomes a compact bracelet again.
Cons:
* The string kinda scathed my skin a bit, so I want to try it with a smoother material.
* The plectrum wasn't always held perfectly in place, sometimes it would get a bit loose from between the beads, so it would kind of hang like a charm on a charm-bracelet. So i want to try and design a better method of holding the pick in place.
