Handmade Velvetleaf Rollerball Pen


Unique Item No. 0580


This handcrafted rollerball pen was made by mixing the dried seed pods of a Velvetleaf plant into purple resin.  The cured resin was cut into blocks and turned round on the lathe by hand. Once cut to perfect diameter, ten coats of cyanoacrylate were applied and the pen was polished to a glass shine. The metal components are gold plated.

Unique Item No. 0580

I mixed dried velvetleaf seed pods into purple resin to make this handcrafted rollerball pen.  I cut the cured resin into blocks and turned it round on the lathe by hand. Once cut to perfect diameter, I applied ten coats of cyanoacrylate and polished the pen to a glass shine. The metal components are gold plated. 

Ink Refill

This pen uses rollerball style refills.  I recommend the Schmidt 5888 ink refills (Amazon Affiliate Link), which are widely available through Amazon and other retailers. To change the ink refill, simply unscrew the metal section underneath the cap, and mind not to misplace the spring.

Gift Box

Each of my handmade pens comes in a stylish Ink & Timber gift box.
