Designed to coincide with the launch of the new Zac Brown Band album comes a collection of men’s jewelry with a special link to Atlanta. The collaboration, with men’s jewelry brand, William Henry features a series of pendants from which a portion of proceeds goes to benefit Zac Brown’s Camp Southern Ground.
But first things first. The new album, Jekyll + Hyde, released April 28, is climbing the charts and currently holds the number one spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs. Weird, right? You can catch the band on tour this weekend at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park, 2200 Encore Parkway, Alpharetta. Shows start at 7 p.m., May 8-9. Tickets range from $36.50-$89.50 and are available by calling 1-800-745-3000 or on www.ticketmaster.com.
If you haven’t given the album a listen yet, read the review from AJC Music Blog writer Melissa Ruggieri.
And here’s a little ear-candy featuring that rock chart topping song:
In conjunction with the album release, yesterday marked the debut of a limited edition collection of hand-engraved guitar pick pendants by William Henry. The pendants hold up to three guitar picks and come with one Zac Brown Band official tortoise-shell celluloid pick and one black William Henry pick. The face of the pendant features imagery inspired by the Jekyll + Hyde album art.
Matt Conable, the founder and chief designer of William Henry is a longtime pal of Zac Brown. The two bonded over a love of music and pocket knives. Previously they released a collection of guitar-inspired pocket knives. Conable founded Willam Henry in 1997 with a collection of award-winning pocket knives which gained popularity as functional jewelry for men. Today, the brand also offers writing instruments, money clips, cuff links, key chains and golf tools.
This Jekyll + Hyde collection features three versions of an engraved pendant in bronze on a double layered deerskin cord ($199), silver on an antiqued sterling silver chain ($299), and a limited edition sterling silver with gold inlay on a sterling and onyx accented chain ($1499).
Each pendant also features a mechanism for secure pick storage(it can hold up to three) and easy release. Here’s the flipside:
The pendants are available for purchase on WilliamHenry.com. And to make it even sweeter, your purchase will help kids. Twenty percent of proceeds from the sale of the pendants goes to Camp Southern Ground. The camp, which is located in Fayetteville, helps children of typical and special needs overcome academic, social and emotional difficulties. It serves children ages 7-17 and offers a program for nutrition, exercise, and the latest practices in therapy for youth affected by neurobehavioral disorders such as Asperger syndrome, Tourette syndrome and autism spectrum disorders, as well as learning differences such as ADD/ADHD.
