Hubby and I went to the 9th Annual Easton Art Affair this past weekend. While it is a very small arts fair, it is a good one. All of the artists are very talented, and the pieces are usually interesting and beautiful.
This year, Mestari Designs, owned by artisan Stan Cook and his wife, was in attendance. Originally knows as Long Hollow Pens, the name was changed in 2008 to reflect the other items produced by the company. Mestari uses every type of wood imaginable for pens, sketching pencils, and other gorgeous items including platters and bowls. Some of the pens available include pens crafted out of ancient wood from Scotland, antique wood from Ohio and other states, and olive wood from Bethlehem. I was truly impressed with the quality of the pens.
Based in Letart, WV, Mestari Designs offers some unique and beautiful items. I highly recommend taking a look at their web site, and checking to see if they will be at an art fair near you! You can contact them for more information here.
In 2005, the Montblanc Pen Company started the “Sign Up for the Right to Write” campaign in conjunction with UNICEF, in an effort to raise money to help children around the world learn to read and write. The campaign was very successful, and Montblanc has expanded it since then, including celebrity involvement.
The Montblanc Meisterstuck #149 collection is the symbol of the campaign, and a beautiful pen. The nib of each pen is hand engraved with the number 4810, the height of Mont Blanc. The 149 is packaged in a beautiful presentation box, complete with an inkwell. A beautiful pen, created for a beautiful cause! Purchase a Montblanc Meisterstuck #149, and help stamp out global illiteracy.
It is not often that you find excellent craftsmanship for a reasonable price. This is what you find at NFW Watches. The watches are beautiful, and all show a style that is unique in the watch world. NFW Watches has been chosen by some pretty impressive organizations to develop watches for them. While the average person is not an impressive organization, she is able to wear the same quality watch.
Right now, the NFW website does not show any of the smaller faced/ladies watches. The company is in the middle of revamping its website, and the new site will have a section for the ladies watches. Until the new site is launched, however, there is no way to enjoy the beautiful ladies watches NFW has to offer. That is, until now. Thanks to George Fox, president of NFW Watch, and Aaron Fuhrman of Zeitlos Imagery, Her Watch and Pen is pleased to offer a look at these unique and stylish watches.
The Ladies Vector 36mm, comes with a stainless steel bracelet, and a crocodile
grain Italian leather strap. It comes with several face colors, including both pink and blue Mother of Pearl, white, black, and brown.
The Ladies Milan is a gorgeous watch! At 24mm x 34mm, it also comes with both a stainless steel bracelet and a crocodile grain Italian leather strap.
