colorful + fun: pencil chimes!

by Grace Bonney


Hola, adorable idea! While I don’t use pencils very much, I adore the look of colorful pencils and think they’re perfect for bringing a little color to your desktop. But illustrator and craft stylist Vanessa Boer has found an even better way to display them — in color fade mobiles that use rulers as their bases! Vanessa collects vintage pencils and rulers and turns them into “chimes” that she sells in her Etsy shop. I have a hard time resisting a good tonal fade like these greens and reds, so I’m hooked, but if you want to check out more images of these pieces, you can view (and shop) Vanessa’s collection online right here. Here’s a cheer for gently dangling pencils rather than the chewed-up versions that end up on the floor because of stress! xo, grace
