Greensleeves played on the 26 string harp I designed and just finished building. I used different features from many different harps to make a hybrid that was uniquely mine - and fulfilled my needs. The harp body, pillar and neck are made from walnut I had on hand, in addition to ebony used for the turned pivot where the knee-block meets the top of the box body. The dragonfly inlay has abalone shell wings and an ebony body, with real rubies for eyes. The dragonfly was inlayed into a piece of holly wood which was framed with pink ivory and then the whole assembly inlayed into the walnut of the neck. If you would like to see how the harp was made please look at my blog: http://dragonflyharp.blogspot.com/ where I recorded the process step-by-step. As for my playing, well I have been practicing on my own for 4 years now and this is the best I can do. I am a better harp builder than I am a player- but I enjoy both.
