Hand Made Pen Holders

Our dip pens are unique and hand made exclusively for Lettering by the Sea by Harry Beaves in his Dorset workshop.  


About Harry 

Throughout his military career Harry always  maintained an interest in making things in wood, in particular toys and puzzles for this children. After leaving the Army in 2000, Harry studied Furniture Craft at Bournemouth & Poole College and was subsequently awarded a City and Guilds gold Medal for Furniture. He then worked as cabinet maker until he retired.

Harry enjoys combining wood with other complementary mediums.  With his calligraphy pens an unspectacular piece of wood will often ideally match a dramatically patterned synthetic material. No two pens are ever quite the same. 


 We hope you enjoy looking through this gallery of beautiful pens. and might even be tempted to purchase one. Many of them come complete with a coordinating stand. 

These little gems will  are exactly what every calligrapher needs to complete their toolkit
