I was pleased when this arrived. It was delivered quickly and I found the seller to be very helpful. That said, the bottom of the feather was quite short and consequently the leather had been wrapped very far down on the nib. It is not possible to use without dipping the leather in the ink. Possibly just a personal gripe because I took it to a weekend camping event, but the feather snapped very quickly.

Both of these items are of a decent quality and easy to use, and I was pleased to see them arrive. Excellent service. Possibly just a personal gripe because I took it to a weekend camping event, but the feather snapped very quickly.

About

Animating the Art of Writing

While I was getting my Masters in Poetry, I was living in California & really wanted to find a way to fuel my inspiration for writing poems by creating art dedicated to writing itself. I started making feather quills with some antique pen nibs & feathers I had lying around, trying different ribbons & fabrics on them for grips, dipping them in all sorts of inks, & writing on parchment paper & papyrus & I just wrote. It felt authentic. Not only was I channeling a sort of physical exercise in writing, but it helped spark something in my writing. So I created more quills, acquiring materials right here on etsy & began building a shoppe.

At the beginning, I started receiving custom requests which further inspired my future creations. I also began researching types of feathers that could make really durable & beautiful quills. I just strived to maintain a wide variety of quills for every type of writer out there.

Customers kept coming back to me for more quills & with utter pleasure for their new pieces. I started feeling like I was bringing writing & art back into people's homes, into their lives. So many have purchased quills for their teenagers who are just coming into writing and/or art & they are so excited when they receive their sets. It brings me so much joy & continues to give me inspiration to continue producing unique & quality made pieces that are not only efficient in their use, but gorgeous accessories for someone's home or desk, or even their wedding guest book table.

I like to use authentic materials for my pieces. The price can be a little on the high end, but it really makes for better quills when I use deer leather, or antique pen nibs, or even the wood I choose for the stands. I purchase most of my materials from local shops on etsy, including: antique pen nibs, feathers, ribbon & lace, even handmade muslin script ribbon. The materials for my stands & inkwells are purchased from my local craft store. The ink is all purchased from various companies including Bombay & Speedball.

Currently, I work full-time, raise my beautiful daughter, run a publishing company, & write poetry, & run my little shoppe! My first book of poetry will be released by Dancing Girl Press in 2016 & I'm just spending my energy of living, loving, & sharing life.
