Ashes into Pen

Ashes into pen. A unique, subtle and discreet keepsake. You can have a small amount ashes incorporated into a hand carved pen. This highly individual item is made in by a skilled craftsman in Somerset, England.

You are able to choose from a range of options to suit your own individual requirements.

There are two distinct pen styles:

  • a single piece twist action pen with a Parker type refill.  The colour can be either silver or gunmetal
  • a two part pen with a  screw off cap.  It can be either a rollerball  with a cross type refill or fountain pen supplied with a refillable reservoir. The colour can be silver  or gunmetal.

You can choose native woods selected for their beauty – Hornbeam (light), Holly Oak (medium) or Walnut (dark).

Alternatively if you have specific requirement – let us know and we will try to accommodate it, the craftsmen stocks many UK native and exotic woods.

    I just wanted to send an email to thank you for making me the two most beautiful pieces with my cat’s ashes in. The Pandora-style charm is stunning, and looks fantastic on my Pandora bracelet. The black with silver sparkle is stunning. Secondly the fountain pen is so stylish and well-made. I am so impressed with your service. Thanks again Emma
