English Pendant Ocarinas - hand drawn with 3Doodled Plastic

Last updated 9-17-15


Plastic Ocarina Pendants in the English style.  Tough, elegant, and individually handmade and tuned to be "in tune with itself."  To see what I currently have available for sale, please visit my etsy shop.

Each ocarina is drawn by hand with a 3D printing pen and signed on the back.  They come with a jewelry cord and a songbook.

FAQ: Which Ocarina should I get, metal, plastic, or ceramic?  My metal ocarinas double as fine jewelry, and won't break if you drop them on the floor.  They do however have the characteristics of a metal ocarina.  They heat up as you play, which slightly alters the sound.  Also when played for a while moisture will build up in the wind way, potentially hindering playing.  They are best played for brief periods, just a few songs at a time.  My plastic ocarinas are also very durable, but cannot hold as much detail in design.  Plastic offers a variety of color options, the ability to come in a larger size, and can also be cleaned easily.  I personally enjoy playing the plastic ocarinas more, and wearing the metal, I like both.  I don't make ceramic ocarinas, so if you'd like one of those, you should continue your search!

Plastic Ocarina Care:
The ocarina can be gently hand washed with warm soapy water.

I can make you a 3Doodled ocarina to order, the minimum wait time will be 3 weeks or more depending on my waiting list at the time.  Contact me for an exact quote, which will be based on the following price guide.

Custom Ocarina Price Guide:

4 hole ocarinas will play an entire scale of 8 notes, 6 hole ocarinas play up to 10 notes.  The 4 hole ocarina is higher in pitch because it is smaller.

Size 1 -  Plain plastic 4 hole English Pendant Ocarina - Base Retail Price - $100
This size is perfect for wearing as jewelry all day at the Faire.  It is only available in 4 holes.

Sound Samples are a preview to give you an idea of what each size will sound like.  Each one might be in a slightly different key as they are each made by hand.

Whiskey In the Jar Sound Sample, Size 1, 4 holes:


Size 2 - Plain plastic 6 hole English Pendant Ocarina - Base Retail Price - $150
Very large for a pendant but with an even deeper sound that is enjoyable to play and fits in the hand well, especially for larger hands that might have a hard time holding on to size 1.  2 thumb holes are added to the bottom of this pendant for 2 additional notes, increasing the number of songs that can be played.

Saria's Song / Lost Woods Sound Sample, Size 2, 6 holes:


Size 3 - Plain plastic 6 hole English Pendant Ocarina - Base Retail Price - $200
VERY large for a pendant but with an even deeper sound that is enjoyable to play and fits in the hand well, especially for larger hands that might have a hard time holding on to size 1.  2 thumb holes are added to the bottom of this pendant for 2 additional notes, increasing the number of songs that can be played.



Ocarinas can be ordered plain in black, white, or brown ABS plastic so that you can doodle or paint your own design on top!

Alternately: Additions to make it more awesome!
  • Simple stone setting +$20 each, price dependent on type of stone, inquire for available stones and an exact price.
  • Multicolored plastic swirls +$15
  • Hand doodled design of your choosing, for example, a simple sketch of your pet +$50 or more, depending on the design.  Keep in mind that precise detail is not really possible with the 3Doodler, your design will be impressionistic.  See other finished designs for examples.
