Pendactyl No1 - an unusual 'pointing' pen nib with an ivory 'tentacle' glass bead

Pendactyl No1 - an unusual 'pointing' pen nib with an ivory 'tentacle' 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 Dactyloi invented the art of working metals into usable shapes with fire, which seems pretty appropriate, as writing inspires the fire of imagination.

This pendant has a quirky pen nib that represents the moving finger that writes and moves on. And on. The perfect gift for anyone who writes, thinks of writing or just is that little bit quirky.


An ivory glass 'tentacle' bead is mounted on the dactyl nib.  It does not spin on the pen nib stem.

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