The Heart of Song - Hooked
This particular simple pendant is a hooked version of my most famous piece. It was the first actual jewelry design I came up with and has been my favorite since then. It gives out a gentle sound when you tap it near your ear (you don't need to hit it really hard like normal tuning fork). I like how it works with Harmony pendants to create a unique combination of sound and shape.
This particular pendant has a small hook in it which allows the wearer to attach the piece to chains and loops in which you usually can't attach a pendant
The Heart of Song are tuned to C - 442 Hz (or other tones which will affect the length of the piece).
If you wish to have other tuned notes or pitches, please inform me in the order info during checkout.
The untuned pieces will still ring clearly. Simply select the option in the menu.
The piece is sterling silver (925).

The origin of Heart of Song
The origin of Aamu Design resides in the heart of a song. My choir in Jyväskylä is quite special to me; our conductor is also our composer. Through his music he has given voice to countless children's choirs in Finland. And he carries on the noble work Elias Lönnrot who collected my peoples myths and legends for the first time in written Finnish. Pekka Kostiainen (pictured left) does the same with classic church music, composing the first requiem and Easter oratorio in Finnish.
I wear this piece in rehearsals, and when I perform. It is based on the traditional symbol of our choir. And its creation is dedicated to my history as one of Pekka's singers, and the change it has wrought in my life.
