I have a craft fair this weekend and thought I’d make a few Diva pens to see how they do. If the reaction they got on my Facebook fan page is any indication, they should do well.
The pens themselves have Swarovski crystals with gold and rhodium plating- believe me when I say the pictures don’t do them justice, they just won’t stop sparkling. The blue ones are made with a dyna blue acrylester blank, and the red ones are made with Bloodwood. They have a pretty good weight for their size and write nicely.
Making single tube pens almost feels like cheating- I’m getting a full pen but only need to turn 1 blank. It’s a longer blank, but still.
The Bloodwood is finished with 5 coats of CA. Thanks for looking :)
