[Sold] Beetlemania hand-painted fountain pen


Fantasy beetles of all shapes and sizes adorn this stunner of a pen by Yulia Glas. We have called it Beetlemania. They are in the most dazzling colours, with lots of sparkles, against a glossy black background. The effect is terrific. These guys would put the fashionistas as The Met or at a rock concert to shame. There is a Starr Bug. A Lennon ‘n Lime Bug. A Strawberry Fields Beetle. A scarab beetle named John. A Lady Gagabug Bling Bug. A Psychedelic Love Bug. The Stag Party Beetle is my favourite.

The grip section is in a shiny black with a bit of shimmer and we have added a bronze section ring, cap band and our logo medallion embedded in the cap finial.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen, however if you would like to request a custom pen from Yulia that has a similar theme, you are welcome to contact us via the contact form on our website.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
