Beetle Stylus

Tonight I made a calligraphy stylus out of found objects.
The body is a burned palm frond, incised with relief printmaking tools. The nib is a plastic mouthpiece for a costume cigarette-holder that I carved to a point with a razor blade, and the beetle carapace was found in Camp Verde, AZ.
As to whether it actually works, I will have to wait and see until I've finished making some ink.
