Depicts ‘fa’, ‘so’ and ‘la’, three of the symbols from Aikin’s seven-shape ‘do-re-mi’ system of musical notation.
The construction of the shaft and attachment to the backing is similar to the construction of the salt spoon made earlier.
See the first attempt at the ‘stock’ cufflink head. The effort to melt gold filings into the enamel was not successful. Also, one corner saw a meltdown of the silver border. The same situation happened to a lesser extent in the tip of the arrowhead in the ‘flow’ cufflink. The effort to repair the tip with extra silver was partially successful, but shows a noticeable defect.
See my notebook page showing the iterations of the design of this pendant. I apologize for my chicken-scratchings. I considered making the ‘S’ by drawing silver sheet through an S-shaped hole. Also, 3D printing. And, making all of the letters from round and half-round wire.
