Default Kitless with gemstones

Hi folks! Long time no post. I just wanted to share a pen series I created using gemstones for rollstops. Designing was fun, photographing was a pain lol. The pink pen open up front is the same as the one in the pen stand, I just photoshopped it around for the initial images (I was running a KickStarter campaign for them). Thanks for looking!

John, it has been quite a while.
But your Post of your Gem Series, has been Well Worth the Wait.
The Gem Series have Beautiful Profiles and Proportions, and Mounted Cabochon Roll Stop.
Superb Machining, Fit and Finish.
The Semi Transparent Blanks Provide an Excellent Opportunity to View the Ink Reservoir Mechanism.
Excellent Presentation of your Pens,
Congratulations,
Brian.

Very attractive! I like your choice of materials, especially the rollstops, as well as the design. Well done!

Nice! I really like how you did the finialless closed-end cap, I think I might borrow that idea. The design really shows off the blank and the gemstones are perfect accents. Great job on the Photoshop too, I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out!
