Handcrafted fountain pen: Serene Silk with a sapphire section
This fountain pen is made from ribbons of hand-painted silk, embedded in resin that we created specifically to match the silk’s classy hues. The pen body’s colours are calming, with tiny threads of gold that glint in the sun. We had posted this pen previously, but have recently replaced the section with this one in a sapphire blue. It is currently my daily writing pen and I shall be sad to see it go.
This pen is ideal for writing long, contemplative journal entries, letters to intimate friends, or exercises in penmanship. (Or should that be penpersonship? OK, in calligraphy!)
In keeping with the colours, the shape is slim and elegant. Tall.
