Flute Key Mod

This is an example of an unusual request for an extension of the G# left pinkie key on a sterling silver Vestus flute. The player couldn’t reach the key in its normal position so I created an extension that mimicked the original key that could also be easily removed if she ever wanted to sell the flute. If it turns out she is going to keep this instrument for the long haul, then I will make a single, elongated key for her.
