Default A bolt for the Ladies

My first bolt action pen, I was wanting something different then a Camo style but still nature inspired, so I went with a dusk colored water background and my water lily canes.
I like how it came together for something a little different.

Beautiful Pen Melanie,
Superb Polymer Clay Blank,
Beautifully Turned, and Finished,
Though from the fifth Photograph, it looks that the Transition at the Nib End is a little over turned, and this could create an irritation when using the Pen.
Just a suggestion, as the Pen is so beautiful, you might like to dismantle the Pen, and build up the Transition area with CA, then Polish to size.
Kindest regards,
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?

Gorgeous pen!
