James Demory of Moonlighting Pens has been turning pens for the past eleven years and appearing in craft festivals for ten. Over this time, he has concentrated mainly on making refillable pens, pencils, and fountain pens. He uses a variety of materials including various species of wood, colorful acrylics, and deer antler to produce high quality writing instruments. There are also many themed hand inlay pieces designed to appeal to a wide variety of customers.
In addition to writing instruments, he also turns crochet hook sets and seam rippers. The crochet hook sets feature a custom-made handle and nine interchangeable hooks (C through K). These, as well as the seam rippers, are done in wood and acrylic.
James recently introduced a line of sports memorabilia pens. These pens use materials from historic stadiums and game used jerseys of famous athletes. Each come with a certificate of authenticity.
With each purchase, he supplies a presentation card containing complete instructions for changing refills. This card also contains contact information in case there are any questions. It is his desire to provide his customers with an item they will enjoy for years to come. He invites you to stop by his location and treat yourself or find the perfect gift.
