Meet the Maker

My name is Jessie Mintz, and I have a passion for making things by hand. What started as an impulse to just keep my hands busy has "turned" into a love and appreciation for woodworking and machining. I sincerely hope my craft can inspire you to create!

I am an avid journaler and this was the perfect pen! It is nicely weighted without being heavy in the front or back, it feel so balanced. It has such an elegant shape to it without being too bulky or thin. It’s my favorite pen now!! I love the look and feel of the wood along with the black accent on the clip. I would recommend this pen to anyone who writes with a pen. It makes a perfect gift to someone you love!

Stunning craftsmanship.

Has weight to it but not heavy.

Writes very well.

The packaging was so nice I almost didn’t want to open the box.
