My pen is the barrel of a gun; remind me which side you should be on

This necklace is so dope, and so perfect for a writer like myself.

Erica Weiner found a huge box of gently used stainless steel pen nibs in an old barn in Maine and thought they'd make fantastic pendants... so she cleaned them up, soldered on tiny brass rings, and strung each nib on an 18" chain with a lobster claw clasp. Many of the nibs already had flattened points, but the super sharp ones have been slightly filed down. Each nib is unique and may be embossed or imprinted with the pen type, brand name, or year of manufacture (some from the mid-1800's). Some may have minor corrosion and/or traces of ink still visible.

I want! Someone forward these to my boyfriend....
