This miniature triangle ('tit-fer) was hand-formed in wax and cast into solid metal. 

For a bit of history on the cajun triangle, read the piece below by Louisiana Voices:

'Tit-fer - the Louisiana French name for a triangle, a simple instrument often used to provide rhythm in a Cajun band. 'tit derives from the French word "petit" meaning little; fer means iron in French. A traditional 'tit-fer is made from a tine of an old-fashioned hay rake, fabricated and tempered by a blacksmith to produce its musical quality. It is also seen as t-fer, ti-fer, or tee fer, with or without capitals or apostrophes. 

The triangle measures approximately 1-1/2" wide by 1-3/8" long and weighs 3.3 grams in bronze (about the same as 3 paperclips). The wand measures approximately 1/8" wide by 1-1/4" long and weighs 1.3 grams in bronze (about the same as 1 paperclip). Each hangs from gold-filled or sterling silver ear wires. Ear wires are nickel free.

Made by hand in south Louisiana.
Each piece varies slightly due to its handmade nature.
