JEWELRY & ACCESSORIES
Y'all keep asking about it,
so here it is. Below, in no particular order, is an index for information about
what I believe are the most significant pieces of jewelry that Stevie wore. Click on the name
(right side of the table) below to
go to the information page about each piece of jewelry. Clicking on the thumbnails will only
take you to a larger picture.

||Music note straps - Stevie had
several of the trademark music note straps: black with white notes,
white with black notes, white with red, red with white notes. These were
made by a company called Earth III which is no longer in business. Main
Strap took over the manufacture of these straps and they remain nearly
identical to Stevie's straps.
||Beaded leather strap - The tan
leather with colorfully beaded strap was a gift from record executive
Jack Chase. "The SRV Native American beaded guitar strap became one
of Stevie's favorites. I had it handmade by an American Indian friend,
and gave it to Stevie for Christmas.All of the beadwork is
handsewn...not done by loom. Very tedious work and it took over 100
hours to complete. This wonderful piece of art was almost lost forever
and I may have never got it back accept for Stevies perseverance. Stevie
told me at one of the shows I attended, that during the tour with The
Allman Brothers the strap was stolen one night from the wardrobe trunk..
He was so upset that he told the tour coordinator that he and Double
Trouble would leave the tour the next day...if the strap was not
returned. The strap mysteriously appeared in his dressing room the next
night before the show. What a blessing for me to always have this gift
to cherish. After Stevies death, I asked Jimmie Vaughan if I could have
it as a keepsake of Stevie. Jimmy said he found the strap on
Stevie's #1 Stratocaster. Somehow it was put on #1 after the
Alpine Valley show."
||The "SRV" black leather
strap with small concho and tassle was made by Stevie's long time friend
from Oak Cliff, Christian Brooks. The black suede leather is cut to
reveal turquoise green leather spelling "SRV." Over time, the
green faded to appear virtually white in many photos.
