Roll Stoppers! I’m proud to announce that Scriptorium Pens now offers Sterling Silver Roll Stoppers as another way to personalize your custom pen. Maybe you’ve always wanted a pen with a unicorn on it, or happen to love dragonflies, or would love to have a little kitty cat draped over the top of your pen. I can provide those or just about any design you can think of.
I’ve always wanted to offer roll stoppers, and when a recent customer asked for a dolphin roll stopper, it was time for me to learn how to make them. I love learning to do new things, and this was a totally new experience because I had to learn silver soldering with a butane torch. After lots of practice, I finally mastered it — and without burning the house down. 🙂 The technique involves desoldering the thin post on the back of an earring, then soldering on a much thicker copper post that will allow epoxy to firmly hold the stopper in place in a little hole drilled in the top of the pen cap.
Below are some of the stoppers I have on hand right now, and I can probably find anything else you may be looking for, whether it’s a winged Pegasus, a faerie, a motorcycle, a snake, an Autumn leaf, or whatever. Roll stoppers are a way to make your pen truly unique, truly yours. Check out the Roll Stoppers page for more info.
