Minor Third - Pendant by Fandragon Minor Third - Pendant by Fandragon
I should start out the comments by saying that - in spite of playing violin for, oh, TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS - my music theory is crap. Crap is probably putting it mildly. I confused the heck out of both my sisters last year when trying to describe part of the harmony on a piece we were practicing (that's a long story for another time) by saying "Okay, this part should be a three-chord, but I'm not sure how to make it work." After babbling on like that for a while one of my sisters was kind enough to suggest that I should call it "a major third, perhaps?" This is by way of explaining that the pendant has been carved so the "G" and the "B-flat" keys are down, making this (I hope) a minor third. PLEASE feel free to correct me on this, and I'll make the necessary change to the title. It's possible that this particular combination of keys isn't even a note, in which case I'll just call it "Dissonance."

As with my other two piano-pendants, this is carved from the top of an old ivory piano key, with little pieces of an ebony key whittled down to size and inlaid into the ivory. Still haven't gotten the hang of carving ivory; that stuff is rock-hard and impenetrable, right up until the point where it crumbles into jagged pieces.

Seeing as how I wouldn't know the difference between a minor third and a smack upside the head, I think the title works very well. And it looks extremely cool too.
