I have bought this item as a xmas gift for my wife. They have to be seen close up to really appreciate the craftsmanship involved. The photos on Etsy do not do the stones justice.

Arrived on time and beautifully packaged. The pebbles are great, I love the letters and the reverse decorations are a fabulous bonus. Great value. These are going to be the best stocking filler ever! Many thanks Lito.
writing as an object
Trained as a historian and having lived in libraries and archives for many years I have become fascinated with written words: their many and changing meanings and the material technologies that make them possible.
Papers, pens, ink, nibs, writing cases, stationery, paper clips and pencils - all objects that surround the act of writing - have their stories; assembled they bring their stories together - they "fall into place" to tell a visual wordless story about the world of words.
In Inklinks I draw from my extensive collection of antique stationery and writing supplies to create objects that like to live between books in a home library or writing desk. Some of my canvases are stones I collect in my travels, others are wood from antique writing slopes. Stones are nuggets of compressed time as are words and texts: the mixed media objects I create are fusions of the constant and the ephemeral.
The collection of mixed media objects, assemblages and commissions as well as more information about my work can be found in my website
You can find in Instagram @Inklinks what inspires me.
