Handmade Pens & Jewels - Wood, Crystals, Pearls & more!
There's always a surprise inside, hiding in the grain. Every wood is different, in the way that it looks and smells, but also in how it releases its secrets to the worker. It wasn't long ago that people had few belongings, and the ones they did have, they cherished. Items were made to be beautiful, to be enjoyed, to be appreciated.
After a lifelong love of working with my hands, and especially with wood, I gained an interest in wood turning in 2010. I hated how pens with clips always got stuck in my hair, where they invariably end up during my busy work days, so I started designing pens made with that in mind. This also created an opportunity to make pens with more interesting features than a simple cap.
I finally launched Mercure Pens in early 2015 after people kept asking about the pens I used at work, or wore in my hair when I went out at night. I realised that other people loved the beautiful magick of wood as well, and I wanted to share that with them. Nowadays, we can buy a box of pens for a couple bucks, but we don't enjoy using them. I love making an everyday item beautiful enough to cherish.
