The Use of Ashes

As I'm sworn to secrecy over my newest commission, I've been working on a small piece in the interludes between operations, an earring based on the song "The Jeweller" by acid-folk-psyche band, "Pearls Before Swine":

The original pig was usurped by a more handsome one, who I think looks somewhat smug:

However, the sad sow in the box had the last laugh:

The Use of Ashes (WIP) 4

The Use of Ashes (WIP) 5

More to come.

I've been listening to loads of interesting music recently. Today it is Ivan Wyschnegradsky's quarter-tone preludes for piano.
