Roll Stoppers — Sterling Silver roll stoppers are a decorative and functional option for any pen model instead of a clip. Choose something fun or meaningful, or something that matches the theme of your pen! I keep a few stoppers on hand, but if you don’t see something you like, let me know what you are looking for and we can probably find it.

How I make roll stoppers — I use sterling silver earrings for all my stoppers. The thin post on the back of an earring isn’t strong enough for the job, so I remove the thin post and solder 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. *Note: I can also make roll stoppers out of copper, bronze, or brass earrings, though there aren’t that many out there.

Cost —  $10 plus the cost of the earrings, which are usually between $12 & $25.

  1. FROGS. When I get a roll-stopper, it must be a frog. 🙂

    Love these, Renee. Yet another excellent development in your pen lines.
