Double-Edged Flower

From the garden, to the page, to the touchscreen, Merrie Buchsbaum's dual-sided, floral pen and stylus will keep you rooted in nature and ready to adapt. Handmade in Connecticut, her vibrant pen-stylus is infused with botanicals hand-picked directly from the artist's garden.

To make the lavender and compost pens, she grinds dried petals, seeds, and stems, or leaves and twigs, and then combines these organic elements with resin. The resulting tools posses natural tints and one-of-a-kind earthy textures, making each one a functional art piece.

Just like your finger, the stylus end works with any touchscreen and keeps surfaces free of smudges and sticky fingers. This screen-friendly tip also allows you to play, draw, and text without having to remove your gloves on brisk days. Whether you're using the ballpoint to put ink to the page or the stylus to navigate your phone or tablet with precision, this stunning specimen is just the thing to inspire any wordsmith or tech maven to spring into action.

If she's working in the gardens, she'll even give a guided tour of her plantings. Her favorites include: the climbing New Dawn pink rose, the cute Dilly Dally Lavender, the different Hydrangeas and many more... It's hard to just have a few favorites. Her gardens are in bloom from late March until mid December. Mother Nature is a never ending treat!
