Pen shell comes from the same family of shells whose holdfast threads were used to spin byssus since Biblical times. It is eaten and the fragile shells are often discarded.
We use the part closest to the umbos (the pointed end, where there is a thin layer of intense iridescence. We carefully cut this part of the shell into strips and inlay them onto flutes. We have left the natural unevenness of the shell to provide a subtle texture.
