These vintage-style pen tips feature a word on each one. I've drilled the holes in them to turn them into literary jewelry for writers. These are reproduction pen nibs with slightly rounded tips. (Real pen nibs can be quite sharp!)

These lightweight Fountain Pen Earrings come gift-boxed.

Word choices inscribed on the pens include:
* Notes
* Journal
* Memoirs
* Thoughts
The words come already inscribed on the nibs as shown. No other options are available.

Ear wires: Gunmetal ear wires
The photos show the "gunmetal hook" ear wire type. You may choose sterling silver if you prefer.

Length: 1 3/4" - 2" (4.45 - 5.08 cm)
Earring length is always measured from the top of the ear wire (the part that will be in your ear) to the end of the earring. The pen tips with different words are slightly different lengths. ("Notes" is shortest; "Thoughts" is the longest.

**Listing is for one pair of earrings only.**

Inspiration: I've taken a few calligraphy classes over the years and I've always loved the shape of the nib that must be dipped into ink. (I'm less fond of the permanent ink stains I always seemed to get on my fingers!) Like many people who work with words on a daily basis, I'm absolutely obsessed with my pens and having the smoothest, fastest-writing ones at the ready.

Frequently asked questions about michellemach

I love making special, one-of-a-kind items!

Stamped key chains, bookmarks, jewelry, and luggage tags may feature your special message as long as it fits the allotted space. Sometimes I need more information from you to complete personalized items, so make sure you're set up to receive emails from Etsy. If I'm unable to reach you, I may need to cancel your order.

Custom items do require more time. During busy holiday seasons, please allow at least a week to make your special item.

Items that are personalized with names, dates, places, or other very specific, custom information are *not* returnable.
Please look in the item description for product measurements. In most cases, there will also be photos to help show you the scale of the item. If you have any questions about size, please contact me prior to ordering.
Jewelry, key chains, bookmarks, luggage tags, and ornaments all come packaged in a gift box with ribbon unless otherwise specified. If you're shipping a gift directly, let me know if you'd like me to include a personal note from you on a handmade gift card in the package at no additional charge. You can let me know in the comment box when you check out.
Aluminum:
The dark lettering on aluminum may eventually fade over time. If you wish, you may re-darken the letters yourself using a permanent marker like a Sharpie pen. Use a soft polishing cloth to remove any excess blackening. Aluminum rings and bracelets may be gently bent to create a more perfect fit.

Copper:
Over time all copper will naturally begin to darken. If you don't love this darker color, you can use a lemon sprinkled with salt to bring back the brighter tone.

Pewter Keychains:
The strongest part of the keychain is the steel key ring. Always hold the keychain by the ring (not the disc) and do not overload it with too many heavy keys.

Sterling Silver:
Use silver polish and a soft cloth to keep it bright.
If you live in Colorado (state), Fort Collins (city), and/or Larimer (county), you will be charged sales tax.
Choose First Class (least expensive, slowest) or Priority Mail (more expensive, faster) shipping at checkout. U.S. packages over 1 pound must be sent Priority Mail as First Class is an option only for lightweight items.
I do *not* normally include printed receipts in packages, except in international packages where it is required by customs. You may print out your own receipt on the Etsy website at any time by visiting your Purchases page under Your Account. If you'd prefer that I include a printed receipt in your package, just ask!
It generally takes 2-8 weeks or longer for orders to arrive from the United States, depending upon how long the package spends in customs and the efficiency of your local postal service. You are responsible for any extra customs fees, duties, or taxes your own country may add. Look at your own government's website if you need more information about fees. Here is the one for the U.K. as an example: https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/overview
