Flute and Treasure Mountain turquoise pendant
"Ritornello" means "little return" in Italian. It is a term used to describe the instrumental interlude between soloists in a Baroque opera or concerto. I chose "ritornello" because I am returning a little piece of a woodwind instrument to another life in the form of jewelry.
This pendant is made from a flute key from a Yamaha flute that did not survive a trip down the stairs. The stone is Treasure Mountain turquoise from the Hubei province of China. Set in sterling silver. The chain is a 16 inch long snake style chain with a 2 inch extender.
