Newton - Overlay - Great Blue Heron

Allyn and I finished this one last night. Taking it to the Arkansas Pen SHow at the end of the month.
Custom sterling overlay. Black ebonite and BSea acrylic barrel. Perfect for eyedropper fill.

The sterling started out as flat sheet and was pierced and cut, then engraved, formed over a mandrel, and finished.

Thanks!

The silver tube started life as a flat sheet of sterling that was cut and then shaped over a mandrel.

No clip on this one, it's a bit large to carry around. It will be getting a roll stopper though.

Do you have some smaller photos so we can see the entire pen without scrolling. The photos are huge and we can not enjoy it as much. Thanks

I forgot to mention that my good buddy BSea (Bob) cast the blank used for the barrel. The rest is black ebonite.
edit: no I didn't forget. I just thought I did. Man I need some sleep. :)

I think the fella from England that normally shows up at the 'show'(sorry, Shawn...I can't remember his name) will be impressed.(he has those big pens with silver wrapped around them)

Shawn....you going to ask what he was asking per pen price? If memory serves, he had some $3,000 pens! You certainly have come a long way.....congrats!
