Pretty in Pink polymer clay covered twist pen. This is a faux opal technique of mine. Be sure to look close at all the photos. This one really does look better in person but I tried to show why.

To make a faux opal, I have used nothing but translucent clays here. Some have been mixed with alcohol based ink which I found is much more translucent than using an out of the package translucent pink clay.
Then I Divide my batches of plain translucent, and pink dyed translucent. I mix in well some very fine glitter and larger flake glitter.
Now the trick to making a nice faux opal is to NOT have bits of glitter poking through. To do this, I roll out a sheet of my glitter mix, then another sheet, paper thin of plain clear translucent and lay my glitter dyed blend on top of that.

The pen barrel is first rolled with a thin sheet of white. Then with my glitter blend. That very thin clear layer now on top, makes sure any flakes of glitter are completely covered.
Sanding and buffing really helps too.

The feel when I'm all done, is just like polished stone. Very sleek, and very beautiful. The glitter is just barely visible and only when the light hits it just right. As in a real opal.

The pen;
Is a very nice quality twist pen. I made one of these for myself to test and it's really nice. Writes very smooth and is a good heavy pen.

This one comes in a plastic protective box. (not photographed in this listing.)
This would make a wonderful gift.

I do have pen refills for 1.00 ea. They are in the pen section, usually last item in the section.

"Bulk orders."

I've been asked often enough what is a bulk order that I decided to spell it out here.

Ten or more canes qualifies as a bulk order and will get you ten more canes free! DOUBLE UP!
To take advantage of this you MUST contact me first.
Give me your list of choices, let me make sure I have enough on hand. Then I'll set up your custom listing at the discounted price.

Another way is with custom requests. I have been asked on occasion to come up with a specific design, then that customer wants the entire batch. (On average, I make about 2' of cane, but that all depends on the design. Could be more could be less.) The price in that case will depend on the complexity of design and quantity and will be quoted in person. But it will be a good discount over the regular per piece price. Your saving me time to cut, wrap and individually pack so I'm happy to pass that savings along.


I generally ship the next day, sometimes the same day as payment is received.

I do not ship on weekends. Also... I live in Michigan where we get snow. LOTS of snow. In winter months I may not be able to get out as fast or as often as I like. But I will let you know via email if there is a delay.

For packages within the USA my rates seem to work out perfectly.
If shipping is higher than what I charged, it's because you bought a lot. I'm delighted and will cover the extra cost to ship.

International shipping is a good guess. Usually what I have is too high. And if it is, I will round up to the nearest dollar and refund via pay pal. (So if you are sending a money order, contact me FIRST. I'll adjust the rate accordingly.)

I ship using USPS and will get delivery confirmation on every package. If something doesn't arrive, or for what ever reason your not happy, please contact me. I'll do everything possible to make things right.

Payment methods;
I prefer pay pal.
I have removed Amazon as a payment option. If you absolutely have to use that contact me.
I do not yet take pro pay. Might in the future, we'll see.

If you really want to keep amazon, or want pro pay please contact me and let me know.

Sorry but I can no longer take personal checks. Money orders are ok, postal ones are preferred. And allow extra time as I can't ship until payment arrives.

NOTE; re mailing money orders;

I will take US POSTAL money orders only!
If you need to send any other form of money order please contact me first. I may make an acception.

Returns and Refunds
So far I've never had anyone ask to return something. However, I want my customers happy. (I want my customers coming back.) If for any reason your not satisfied please contact me. I don't bite. And the only way to make things better is when someone complains.
I pack and store my canes better than when I started out all because of a complaint. If no one says anything I'd never know there was a problem.
I'll do what ever I can on a case by case basis. Just let me know if there is any problem.
