Most of these quills are hand made. We have made each one to be affordable as well as pretty. We try to use unique feathers and designs in beads, ribbons, leather or solder. They are all made from fallen feathers, New Feathers or from old feathers we have had in our collection. Each one either has a nib that can be removed and replaced, one that is stationary to the quill and some that have no nib and you would simply use the Plum end to write.
Quills have always been, and still are used today. Writing with one is not as writing with a pen. It will take longer to write a note or spell but the outcome can be lovely as you can switch from black ink to red to blue to whatever color you desire. That is the beauty of a dip pen. The way it flows from you, through the pen and onto the paper is a very important part of the work itself. More magick and energy can be placed within a page with the more time you invest in the writing of it, basically infusing the page with your intention and power.
Our parchments, ranges from small to large, made from genuine sheep leather or paper papyrus. in the past, paper was scarce and expensive, thus people were using whatever was available and that was animal skins, specially cured and tempered to suit for ink. In our industrial age, it is the other way around. No matter what you would prefer, we have everything you need to accomodate.
The ink is also a very important ingredient in the process. We use the very best magickal inks made by Anna Riva and our own blends, made in house, according to traditional recipes.
Whether you are looking for a spell writing kit or a cool present, we have what you want!
