SNS Collective provides artisans in the pen community with opportunities to create for a purpose.  

 

We are inspired to craft writing instruments that can be more than tools in the hand that script stories beautifully. Here they can become instruments of change that empower beautiful new life stories to be written.

Their Mission:

JUST GO FEED PEOPLE

Mercy Chefs is a faith-based, non-profit disaster and humanitarian relief organization.

REBUILDING MAUI TOGETHER

Makai Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity focused on rebuilding Maui after the deadly wildfires of 2023. Our team is made up of local families, businesses, and leaders in Maui County who all are acting as first responders. Your support can help us to rebuild Maui better together.

We are focused on supporting the rest of Maui during economic hardship that inevitably follows natural disasters of this magnitude.  Many of our Partners are local business owners who are active in the community, and with Makai Foundation, pledge to support our local Maui economy during this difficult time.

We understand that this process will take time and effort. That’s why we are dedicated to taking a multi-generational view and providing relief for families who have been affected by the wildfires. With your help, we can bring much needed stability to the Maui community.  You can volunteer, partner with us, or donate online.

Tim Cullen from Hooligan Georgia will be making some hand engraved nibs in the near future. Be on the lookout for these.  What is raised from these nibs will be donated to the Makai Foundation. Thank you for your support!

Venice Grande Maui Edition

This is a one-of-a-kind pen created just for this fundraiser. It is based on our HT Venice Oversized Model. The cap is made from a transparent blue. The finial has our first ever piece of hand cut Nickel silver as an overlay on our glass mosaic. There are 11 pieces of Venetian glass in the mosaic framed by the turtle shape. 

The pen is fitted with a number 6 bock nib that was engraved with our turtle design and donated by @penrealm . 

The grip section is made with a chatoyant dark blue material as a reminder of the ocean which refracts the light differently depending on how it hits. 

It also has our standard ink window to give movement like the waves and to show you how much ink you have left in the pen. 

The barrel of the pen has a small piece of the material the grip section is made from in addition to an inner sleeve made from the same material to give it some strength to support the wood hybrid material on top. The wood material is an Amboyna burl dyed sap wood in a blue resin. It compliments the rest of the pen beautifully by giving it the perfect island vibe to honor Maui. 

You can’t write with this without thinking of the beauty of the Hawaiian islands and whoever collects it can know that they have been a helped the people in Maui greatly at the same time! It is an incredibly beautiful and unique pen for any pen collector.
