A cello pin...sure, no problem. 2 days of research later, I was finally satisfied with how to make a 2-1/2" pin not look like a violin. The obvious answer was the end pin, but the proportions and curvature of the front of the body were important as well.

Constructing on such a minute scale was challenging. I forged a tiny thick sheet of sterling into a triangle, making it thinner at the base, and then hammered it to mimic the scroll's crescent roll like shape. The strings (made of 22K gold wire) actually wrap around each peg.
