Silver/gold steampunk polymer clay pen with key and faux leatherstraps

Details

This is a high-quality satin pearl slimline pen using Cross-type refills, handcrafted with polymer clay and an antique brass metal key. The cartridge that comes with the pen contains black ink.The background is a blend of silver and gold polymer clay, and the leather straps and screws are made with burnt sienna and silver polymer clay. The key is held in place with a faux leather strap. Designed to be fun and interesting while still comfortable to write with. The photos show the front and back of the pen, both open and closed. The pen writes smoothly and is refillable - just pull off the top, unscrew the ink cartridge, and replace.

The pen is lovingly crafted by hand with every detail, including the stitches on the leather straps, carefully added.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

After spending several months making beautiful handmade pens using a variety of polymer clay techniques, I became fascinated by the world of steampunk, and set myself the challenge of making steampunk pens with polymer clay. I had so much fun experimenting with different ways of incorporating steampunk elements (leather straps and buckles, clocks and watch gears, chains, and metal charms of various kinds) that I became hooked. I've listed some of my pens and continue to experiment with new ways of embellishing pens that are not only fun to own and use but also functional and refillable.

For those who might be knew to the world of steampunk, I've included this description that I found in Wikipedia:


Steampunk refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West" in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. It may, therefore, be described as neo-Victorian. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era's perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the modern authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, Stephen Hunt and China MiƩville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternative history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analogue computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine.
