This is a set I did for a friend in the UK. I wanted to do a bit of customization to the work, so had some intermediate pictures that he had made suggestions as to what he wanted it to have.

The second pic shows the first rounding of the magnifying glass handle, via twitter I was able to get comments back and forth on what he was looking for, which is how the grooves were added into the handle in the third shot.
The design takes advantage of the finger dips at the top and ridges on the tail to be able to balance with the pinky.

My only concern were how the two different metal finishes would clash between the silver in the pen and gold on the glass.

the combo photo shows that the Olive helped ease the contrasting between the two kits for the pen and glass.
