Sinker Cypress and Dinky Dips

This is my custom designed dinky dip holder. It is one of my favorite accessory tools. Of course, the dinky dips are indispensable for pointed pen calligraphy. You can find them at John Neal Booksellers or Paper and Ink Arts. There is a holder that you can purchase also. But I wanted to kick it up a notch and make my own.

This dinky dip holder was made from a piece of sinker cypress that was pulled from the south Louisiana bayous by my cousin, Dennis Guy. He is a wonderfully interesting man that lives and works in the bayou country.

If you would be interested in a custom dinky dip for yourself, please contact me.


  1. Yes! I love it! So much more aesthetically pleasing that the ones that come with the dinky dips--and more practical too. Where do I sign up?

  2. Oh it's beautiful-and so unique!
