What else is New in 2012?
I've decided to concentrate on my established markets and stick to a few smaller shows this season. The bigger commercial shows were becoming a big drain on my goodwill and my time (and my sanity!). I've also decided to try more charity sales and they'll be posted as more information comes available.
Check my Calendar page for all of my new and pending shows and markets.
Once again, I've picked up a bunch of new materials. Coming soon - polymer clay tigerwood, black-and-white ebony (very rare!), kingwood, bloodwood, moose antler, new acrylics, and much more!
The new inlay techniques, polymer clay, and other materials are coming along beautifully and I've got several new pens done. If I have a chance I'll post them here but you can always check out my market stall or other shows to see them.
About My UNIQUE Hand Made Pens
All of my pens are hand-crafted on a wood lathe using the finest pen hardware available in a large variety of designs and plating styles.
I use over 200 different materials in the construction of our pens - from exotic wood species to deer and elk antler and numerous synthetic materials.
Many of my pens and materials are unique to our company and you wonít find them at any other vendor Ė even at twice the price (and thatís what youíll often pay for those pens anyway!).
All of my products are created from environmentally sustainable or reclaimed materials wherever possible. All horn and antler products are renewable source animal products or from animals which have been specifically harvested for other purposes.
All of my pens use standard refills (Cross, Parker, Waterman,, Schmidt or Hauser) that are available at almost any department store or stationery store.
