This piece is an inspiration from a picture sent to me by Shubha ji. I challenged myself to do it as it was a very functional product. Some designs work out to be so difficult that mid-way you feel like abandoning them but then I am not one of those who gives-up easily. I kept re-doing it till I succeeded, and it was a tremendous boost to my confidence! Six months, 4 people, 12 sheets of steel and 8 dies led to a beautiful pen holder.
Many of us carry journals and notebooks and find it a problem to keep a pen around. This may come handy!
