Let me start off by saying that this is beautiful and it's very well put together. I think the elements go very well together and it is a lovely pen. However, when I think 'Druid', I think an aging man living amid the trees or perhaps in a cave behind a scared grove. This pen to me looks like it would be more at home in a noble's parlor or study. If you're going for a more Druid-y design, you might want to try something a bit more simple, more aimed towards nature. Woodland bird feathers might go better in a druid pen than the fluffy black one or the peacock feather. As I said, I think this pen is very nice, if a bit off in my mind. Of course, no one can define the limits of your imagination, this is simply from my point of view.
What do you think?

thats very pretty, I love the small iridescent feathers, and how the shapes of the feathers balance against each other.. it looks like it would feel nice to hold. I like the gold, green and black and the iridescence in the feathers, and how you picked those colors up with the beads and such. its nice you used a good quality pen too. I think its a very beautiful pen :}}
