"The violin is an incredibly beautiful instrument, from the sound it makes to its construction - including the tuning pegs. I create violin peg necklaces by hand. Each necklace features a unique peg with hand-selected beads, and just like all musicians and musical instruments, no necklace is the same. The tuning pegs of the violin have personalities of their own, which I aim to compliment in each design. Every peg I use is unique and is a real violin peg. I hope you enjoy this memento of celebrating the violin and keeping “in tune” with string playing and the importance of music in our lives through my necklaces. All proceeds go towards scholarships for the O’Connor Method String Camps I co-direct with my husband Mark O’Connor."
Maggie's Violin Tuning Peg Necklaces will be available at the merchandise table for most of Maggie's performances. Please keep in mind, Maggie is primarily a touring musician and makes these necklaces on the road, so we ask for a 2 to 3 week turnaround for shipping and there will be a no return policy. Blank peg necklaces (violin peg on a cord without any beading) can be made upon request. All proceeds go towards scholarships for the O'Connor Method String Camps. Thank you for supporting string education!
