Description

This is a one-of-a-kind Mother Nature inspired Jeweled Beetle Wing pen that is filled with re-claimed jeweled beetle wings from Thailand. Every four weeks the beetle dies and its wings are just discarded.  The people of Thialand pick up the wings and offer them for sale. In order to work with the metalic beetle wings, the beetle wings are boiled to soften them and then rectangle pieces are punched out.  Hundreds of these punched out pieces are individually glued in a herringbone pattern onto a hand painted barrel.  The bettle wing pieces are then coated over a three day process with a polyester acrylic.  The encased bettle wings are then carefully turned on a lathe, and hand sanded to 12,000 grit. The assembly is then, buffed to a scratch free shine and matched to the pen hardware. Pen is packaged with a high gloss laquer pen case as shown.
