Bass clarinet key and Hubei 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 silver plated bass clarinet third finger right hand key and paired with a Hubei turquoise cabochon set in sterling silver. The sterling silver plated chain is 16 inches long with a 2 inch extender.
