A very useful wooden Bog Oak Keyring Stylus designed to attach to your mobile phone aswell as your keys! 

Once again I love how I have been able to make something with Bog Oak that has proven to be handy for all my touch screen devices.  The stylus is finished in gold plate with a soft rubber tip which is very precise when texting etc.  I have been told by those with long nails that the stylus makes a great difference to them when browsing and the fact that it attaches to your mobile via the headphone socket leaves it conveniently accessible.

A great mix of something ancient and something very modern, this beautiful  Bog Oak Stylus would be a lovely present for anyone for birthdays, wedding party gifts or corporate presentation gifts.
