These unique Lavender Glass Bead Pens are individually sculpted by Pelindaba's Andrea Kiernan. Each intricate bead is handcrafted one at a time using colored glass rods and a torch fueled by oxygen and propane. After the bead is sculpted, it is properly annealed or set to cool slowly overnight in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durability.
This handmade artisan lampwork Lavender Glass Bead Pen features a long and elegant lavender glass focal bead (bead length 2”) sandwiched between ornate silver toned beads. The metal pen base is a deep purple color and has a nice weight to it. To open and close turn the pen in the middle near the silver ring in the pen.
The pen purple in it's purple gift box filled with fragrant lavender buds and hand tied bow make the perfect gift for the lavender lover in your life - your boss, secretary or the person who has everything!
