Kaleidoscope beaded fountain pen

R4,450

As this pen turns, the kaleidoscope of colours shifts from fuchsia to amethyst to wine to silver to grey to dusky matte pink to salmon pink, to silver, to charcoal, while on the row below that, cobalt turns to forest green, to moss green, to aqua … and it appears they keep changing.

The pen body and cap are made of shimmery streaks of turquoise-grey-green while the section is a royal blue with hints of emerald and silver sparkling below the surface.

This beaded Kaleidoscope fountain pen is the antonym of mediocre; the antidote for boredom, so it should not be difficult to find an ink to match her colours.

Beaded pens are becoming one of our specialities and we have recently upped our game by incorporating beadweaving … each coloured bead is woven into place by hand and there are more than 350 Japanese Miyuki Delica beads on this pen. Beadweaving is like learning to weave spells, only harder. (In my Muggle opinion.)

Note: We have made one pen to start with, but once that is sold we will be happy to make another one specifically for you. Just please allow us a few weeks to get your pen ready … it involves a LOT of different steps.
