    I now pronounce you Husband & Wife

    I suppose there's a story why the guy gets Black and the gal gets White. I have no idea what that might be! I can only think it has something to do with Purity or whatever!



    The style of pens are Canadiana Rollerballs, Alternative Ivory & Ebony, with platings of Titanium Gold & Sterling for the lady, and Sterling & Titanium Gold for the man.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Mack, as usual, those are beautiful!
    I have found ebony to be my toughest challenge. If I don't split it drilling it, it seems to develop cracks later after being turned (week to a month later). I love the looks of it when finished, I have a couple of antler/ebony segmented pens. Those are just outstanding pens.

    Beautiful pens. Whose alt ivory did you use?
    Personally, I don't believe I would even try making an ebony pen. Stuff is too expensive and risky.
    The one wedding set I made, both pens were white. Did I do something wrong? I noted that shortly after the wedding she developed a limp and now has to use a cane.
