Treasure My Pen Turning Items
For Years To Come
They say that a thing of beauty is a joy forever, and collectable pens are certainly a testimony to the truth of that statement. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty of these handcrafted pen turning items. The only way I can bear to part with some of the pens is knowing that they are going to good homes with customers who will treasure them as I do.
When I was exploring the Web as a part of finding all the pieces that I need to make my pens, I was amazed at the devotion of pen collectors. Tribute sites and forums show that you reward those who deliver the best. I hope I can always do that for you.
The best part of this art is that it is practical. You can lock your pens in a case, but many people use them as they were meant to be used. They aren’t just pretty to look at—-these handmade pens are functional pieces of art.
Making An Art Piece
Making these pens worthy of being collected starts with the materials. There are many different woods, metals, and even plastics that can be used to make pens. I prefer wood or bone materials, and gold, silver, or platinum plating pieces.
When I look at the pen blanks that turn into the body of your pen, I always check the grain and quality of the wood to ensure that it is sound. Even some of the best woods, like aromatic cedar, can have knots that ruin the visual appeal. I choose only the best and smoothest grains to place on my lathe and turn into collectable pens for you.
If I’m working in acrylic or corian, I am equally careful. The look of the final product will always show the care with which the materials were chosen.
The plating and clips on the pens serve as accents to the wood. You can create a warm or cold look for the pen with the accents. You can also choose to go with contrasting or coordinating accents depending on what you want from the final piece.
The clips on my collectable pens can also be customized, giving your collection a flair that is uniquely yours. Your pieces can be instantly recognizable to your family and friends thanks to their personal quirks. You can enjoy years of pleasurable use of your personal collection, and any wandering pieces will be recognized and returned to you.
If you ever have to part with your collection, you will also find that it holds its value well. These pens are well made and the quality shows. Buyers or other collectors will appreciate the nuances of each pen you’ve selected from my product line.
