During my last pen order I ordered up something new to try. “Artisan Magnifier Necklaces” I got them a couple of nights ago and decided to turn one tonight. I had a single tube already glued up that did not have a mate for my twist pens so this was perfect. The first pic shows how it came out.

The second is of the kit itself. The kit comes with a mini twist pen tube which is only 1 1/4” long, I started to turn one that I already had glued up but did not like how small it seemed to look. Instead I used a standard slimline tube which is 2” long. I like the look better.
As you can see in the picture the kit comes with the chain pre-attached which really did not work well trying to use the pen press plus it uses a small loop to attach it to the pen. My wife and her jewelry tools made a quick fix so it would just slip through the pen cap itself. All in all not a bad kit I am going to pick up a few more and add them to my catalog for the holiday shows. One nice thing about them is if I mess up half a pen I can make the other half still and make one of these.

Thanks for looking.

Nice idea. I could see them sell. Always good to have a variety.
