Pendantry No 6 - a vintage pen nib pendant with a deep red lampwork bead
The pen nib is mightier than the sword, so they say. Perhaps it is true, because they are quite pointy and sharp. Please bear this in mind when you wear your Pendantry, as it could be awkward to hug a loved one and give them a bit of a wound as you press yourself to their beloved frame.
This pendant has a vintage pen nib that has been cleaned and buffed slightly but not polished to remove wear marks or other indications of use.
A deep red glass bead is mounted between two silverplated spacers on a vintage steel nib. The bead is permanently fastened to the nib stem and does not rotate. The white dots visible are the result of the lighting being overenthusiastic, the bead is a solid, undecorated red.
The chain is silverplated and measures approximately 20 inches/50 cm. The glass bead mesaures approximately 20mm across and the pendant approximately 45mm from top of the bail to the tip of the nib.
Please be aware that pen nibs can be sharp. This is not a toy, it is a piece of jewellery intended for rational adults.
