    Texas Bluebonnet Sierra Pen

    Here is a Sierra I recently made. It is made with dried Texas Bluebonnets (the state flower of Texas!) cast in Alumilite clear resin with the inside of the blanks painted a taupe color. The kit is a black titanium with titanium gold trim Sierra.

    This was mainly a proof of concept pen to see if my idea would work. The next one will have more flowers in it and will use a white background. Obviously the flower in the pic is a Bluebonnet. Tell me what you think, good or bad!

    Very different! I think you're on to something. I love flowers of all kinds, colors, shapes, and sizes. That's a very special pen. Hope you do more like it.

    I rarely comment on non-wood pens. But you have set a new standard with that idea. Beautiful. I'm sure you will sell many. Are you going to sell blanks?
