Neon Rainbow PSI Pen Sleeve Pattern
Neon Rainbow PSI Pen Sleeve Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • flat even count peyote stitch beadweaving
  • assembly of PSI pen kit

Pattern Description:

This pen is made using a pen kit purchased from Penn State Industries. These are the same pen kits used by wood turners. They are well made metal pens. You may be able to find these pen kits other places, but this is where I got mine and I know the pattern will fit them. The beaded design is a rainbow that blends from magenta to limon using 8 of the new luminous or neon Delica beads. You could change it up to be your favorite 8 colors if you choose. You will need to make 2 beaded tubes using flat even count peyote stitch. Zip the tubes closed, glue them on the pen barrels and slide your pen together. This pen has a twist mechanism to extend the ballpoint tip, so gluing the beaded tubes on is necessary.
