I made these two ornaments as gifts for two girls who play the harp at our church. The two young girls play Italian-made concert pedal harps that are over 5 feet tall. See the last photo.
The harps are handcrafted works of art. These harps and cost between $11K to $17K. They are made of maple and the sound board is made with Fiemme Valley red spruce
The ornaments I designed are 5 inches tall based on the Salvi Daphne series harp. The cross shape is from our church logo. I used the intarsia technique to make the ornaments.
I used the following woods:
1. Harp: maple, cross bottom: yellowheart, cross top: bloodwood.
2. Harp: cherry, cross bottom: yellowheart, cross top: bubinga.
