OK, Frigid Metals is me, my new store name(On Etsy soon, will anounce when here on the blog!)
Anyway, I made me a brass pen. Custom, heavy “self defense”, blingy brass or copper pens are “in” in some circles, but I don’t like the styling of any of them.
I was making some of my “hexer” beads, and thought, why not? Ran several long beads, mostly a random arrangement or short designs like my beads, just some fun and interesting shapes. Turned out to be more fun to turn than a straighter less complicated pen shape… Tuned out really flashy too when pollished!
Center drilled to fit the 7mm tubes of a pen kit and stacked them on it. They slip fit, and in several pieces I can re-arrange them, or replace them too; A modular custom pen! The lower section I turned an inset smaller, still patterned but smaller section for a grip area. Bead on the fob also by me in a new material I have called cherry cheasecake, and I turned down and cross drilled the domed top cap from the pen kit to take the fob.
Before the lanyard and clip;
For scale, a Bic stick pen;
Made from this, and this piece is all that it left me with!
