The Pen:
Sleek and contemporary, the Filibella features an intricately embossed and unique filigree pattern with 2 small Swarovski crystals. The sleek design appeals to both men and women. Uses a Cross style refill. Plus, the Antique Pewter finish is formulated to simulate the sophisticated sheen of time-worn pewter. The authentic patina and natural darkening brings out the details of the finish and creates a unique feel with a charm all its own. It will add a sense of warmth and history to your to your handmade creation.

The Species:
The term mallee refers to a species’ general growth form (known as a “habit” in biology). Usually smaller and shorter than trees, mallees grow multiple smaller-diameter stems from a common root system. Brown Mallee doesn’t refer to a specific tree of the same name, but rather describes burl pieces from various Eucalyptus species where the wood itself is brown in color. These burls are extremely beautiful and prized for small wood turnings like pens.

Metal Finish:
Antique Pewter

The Process:
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through twelve grits of sanding until perfectly smooth. A final 10-coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years.

This pen was also dyed using a variety of colors, fading from darks on the ends to lighter in the middle. The blend is a darker red/purple, to mid orange, then lighter yellow orange.
