In an age of smart phones with digital cameras and instant connection to social media from almost any corner of the world, it’s almost old-fashioned to write a postcard or keep a travel journal. Let these handsome cloisonné pens inspire you to slow down and reflect on your adventures. In this craft tradition that dates back to the Byzantine era, each pen is handcrafted using a wire outline that is filled with powdered enamel and heated to a porcelain-like finish. Twist-open, black, refillable ballpoint.


5"L.


To create the decorative surface of cloisonné, thin fillets of flattened wire are bent to form a pattern. The spaces between the wires, called cloisons or cells, are then filled with powdered enamel. The exact origins are unknown, but cloisonné techniques most likely evolved out of related mosaic, stained glass, and jewelry-making practices. Although exceptional pieces of cloisonné exist from Byzantine times, modern craftsmen in China and Japan have further refined the art of mixing the enamel pigments to achieve a spectrum of subtle colors.

I love to use these for anything. I gave one away and received these as a gift. They're pretty to look at, hold and work really well. I look forward to refills from national geographic- that is so sweet of them to help you get ahold of those when in need. I plan on keeping these for many years as they seem durable enough. You can tell the enamel is a hand poured technique, it adds to the exclusivity of the product.

Very pretty but so far I have been unable to find refills for these pens. I'm still looking.
