Moons of Jupiter fountain pen : Sinope and Thelxinoë


We have added two purple/violet/mauve pens to our The Moons of Jupiter series: Thelxinoë (with the darker moons) and Sinope (lighter, with the semi-translucent grip section). Thelxinoë’s (pronounced thel-ZIN-oh-ee’s) moons are so dark as to almost invisible in normal indoor light, but in brighter light her purple sparkley moons are both elegant and subtle.

[Update: Thelxinoë sold]

Sinope’s (pronounced sih-nOH-pee’s) moons are a lighter, ever so slightly translucent grey-violet, with a section that has streaks of shimmer that shift from sapphire to mauve.

The Dainty Dafoe model


As the name suggests, this is a feminine, dainty pen. The nib end of the barrel curves in toward the section, which is tapered to follow the shape of the barrel. The gentle curves on both the cap and the barrel lead to a narrow waist in the middle.
