    Leather bound Siroccos, Zephyrs and a Tempest

    Hello fellow pen makers, hope you are all well. It has been a while since I last posted! about a year I think! wow time flies!! Anyhoot, I thought I'd share some pens I've made over the year....

    Siroccos.
    I did a bit of a 'switcheroo' with the pen kit components for the first two pens as I felt they flowed better, hope you don't mind Phil.

    The last Sirocco is a gold and gunmetal kit, bound in dark brown leather with a fox design.

    Gold Tempest with hand painted bee design.
    I made this one to go with an A6 leather journal cover I made.
    Slightly more difficult to do as they are a narrower tubes to work with.
    The bee was hand painted with Fiebings leather dyes and has embossed corner detail.

    ZEPHYR
    Chrome Zephyr made to go with a matching greyhound/whippet themed pocket sized Moleskine cover I made.

    Finally a black and gold Zephyr pen with tan dyed leather, made for Kelvin. The matching Leather satchel/laptop bag and notebook was also made by me for Kelvin. The bag took a while to make as like all my leatherwork, it is also hand sewn.
    The mobile phone case was not made by me, although that will be my next project :-)

    Those are genius. A very clever design feature. I can see a whole new avenue of pen making coming from this. All are great and I like the gold Zephyr with tan pen the best. Very well done.
    So a neighbor knocked on my door at 3a.m. 3a.m.!!!!!!! Luckily I was already up playing the bag pipes.
