I made this pen from a material called alternative ivory. I engraved a goldfish pattern and then filled it with black ink. I think it came out pretty good.

I visited your etsy and quickly determined that I want everything. XD  SO PRETTY!  I tried to wist specific things, but it wouldn't let me, so I wisted the whole site instead.  Wink

"Pretty good"?  Puh-lease.  That's really nice!  The details on your fish are amazing.  Did you turn the alternative ivory?

Thank everyone.
Yes MistressT, I did turn the pen on my wood lathe. Most of the pens I make are wooden, but I also use other materials like Corian, or this alternative ivory.
In previous posts I had a corn cob pen, and then a snake skin pen.
