My New Favourite!!! Lampwork Bead Pens!!











I have to admit....ever since Grade 3 when I "graduated" to using ink instead of pencils, I've always had a thing for pens!








Being left-handed, I learned early on that fountain pens left me with ink all over the side of my hand (pushing, not pulling), but that didn't stop me...I just had a black hand often, LOL.

There's nothing like the haft of a nicely balanced, weighted pen! Thick enough so your fingers don't cramp up, with smoothly flowing ink...I prefer black.

Well, imagine how thrilled I was when I found that I could combine two loves!!! Lampworking AND great pens!!!!

I spent the weekend making them...check these out. Being a tactile person, I love the feel of the smooth, cool glass on the pen, and if I loosen the cap a bit, I can get them to spin, like counters on an abacus!!
