▬ ▬ Note: The base/bottom of the antiqued brass setting is distressed. What might appear in some of the super-sized photos as defects in the resin (e.g., scratches, hairs, dust, etc.) are truly distressing on the BASE of the pendent setting itself. They are invisible to the naked eye but add to the overall aged/distressed appearance of the pendant. The resin application is beautifully smooth and clear -- without scratches, dust, bubbles, etc.
The pen nib is a silver-colored C. Howard Hunt Pen Company "X24 Silverine" nib -- in MINT, UNUSED condition from vintage stock in an original sealed box. The C. Howard Hunt Pen Co. started production in 1897 in Camden, NJ. This nib measures just over 1.5 inches in length and has what was considered a slightly "round-pointed" nib, which was a feature of many of the nibs produced by this company. I love the interesting shape of this nib. The neck of the nib is blank and is apparently for decorative purposes only. The body of the nib has 4 rows of text and reads:
● "X-24" facing the front of the nib (i.e., perpendicular to the rest of the text on the nib body)
● "SILVERINE" (located at top center of nib body and most easy to read)
Since the pendant setting depth is only 1mm, both the nib and the raw brass bird embellishment are exposed. The bird's wings are the most exposed, but the bird's tail and 1 wing hangs slightly off the side of the setting as does a tiny portion of the end of the nib. The resin is slightly domed to ensure the embedded items are secure. The 5th photo shows how the bird's wings stand out above the surface of the pendant.
The words "risks," "expression," and "creativity" were cut from magazines, sealed, and adhered to the base of the pendant setting. The fountain pen nib and raw brass color bird were added last, and then the entire setting was filled with clear epoxy in two different applications. The slightly-domed, smooth, glass-like finish is extremely strong but is not 100% scratch-proof.
