[SOLD] Jade Treasure : Handmade fountain pen
The beads on this pen are Miyukis from Japan in shades of cobalt, amethyst, royal purple and 24kt gold-coat. Part of the dazzle comes from the minute air bubbles trapped in the resin. (Please don’t ask if that was deliberate or luck!) Speaking of luck, jade has been associated with bringing good fortune to its wearer for thousands of years …

(I thought about calling the material we used for making this unique fountain pen, “mutton fat jade”, but it just doesn’t seem to roll off the tongue.) Anyway, it is an in-house resin pour from a batch that also resulted in Faerie Dustup, Passion Flower, and the one pictured below: Faerie Fyre which was sold before we could even advertise it in our online store:
