Pendantry No 14 - a vintage pen nib with a deep red glass bead

Pendantry No 14 - a vintage pen nib with a deep red glass 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. 

The bead is permanently mounted on the pen nib and does not spin.

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 dark red glass bead  is mounted on a vintage steel nib.  The white dots are reflections from the lighting because of the difficulty in taking a good photo.  One makes errors on occasion, but the beauty of the red glass overcomes the pain of bad lighting.  Right?

The chain is silverplated and measures approximately 20 inches/50 cm.  The glass bead measures approximately 15mm across and the pendant approximately 55mm 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.
