Default Mother's Day Pens !

I'll be turning a dozen pens using Olivewood to give to family on Mother's Day.

I need a one piece that has a thicker waist than the Slimline, don't care for the Slimine Pro, and would like a thinner version of the Sierra/ Gatsby for the small handed Moms.

Any suggestions ?

What about the Tiny Giant from Chad Schimmel's Turners Warehouse?

Except for the 'one piece' requirement, the Zoe pen would be ideal. It even has a little added bling.

The Aero is a very nice, smaller, alternative to the Sierra/Gatsby.

How about a 'Streamline' kit? a bit thicker than the Slim...
When searching, you'll see "legacy streamline"... weird, guess it is not popular!
I like them because they're inexpensive, and are a larger pen than the slimmy.

I received my Aero Chrome & Black TI kits from Exoticblanks today, and am very pleased with the component quality thus far.
I had not realized that these are Dayacom kits, an added plus....

I'll post pix once they're done.

Other than Olivewood, any suggestions for other materials that would make these a spectacular finished product ?
