Hi,

During the process of making the Plumage pen, we created a few prototypes experimenting with different colours. Here is one I have in my office using blue and cream enamel on top of engraved sterling silver.

If I may be so bold and ask this question without a hint of critisism: In the designing of a pen like this, does your company consider such things as changing the size of the "feathers" (for lack of a better word) to equal the number per circumferance of cap and body, so the cap and body would appear to be more symetrical? Or, do the design considerations lie upon other lines? Is it the kind of experimentation that you would try this kind of variation with prototypes or is that too difficult?


At Your Service,

Well, I guess "Harlequin" is the proper name for this colour. At least, that's what it reminds me of....

OK, Mary: color me jealous. Quite a pen to **test** as a prototype. Please let me know if you need a second tester...you know how important those second opinions are, eh???? Smile.
