Welcome! It's good to see you here.
I'm Andy Deschacht. Together with my wife
Laura Garcia Belli, we are the "G-D" team:
I craft pens, she presents them by doing our website
taking photos and making videos.
Design, inspiration and ideas are a shared adventure...
It all started as "Enlightened Wood".
That project was the result of putting our hearts and imagination to make one-of-a-kind creations in wood.
It was a period of improvement, research and challenges.
Based on the same concept I created our first writing instruments and then we decided to start with
crafting pens using special wood, metals and other materials for their designs, always prioritizing their writing quality.
High-end & handcrafted, unique & original,
not mass/ serial production.
Something special...That's what we love to do upgrading continuously our working and artistic skills.
In each finished pen we see a functional artwork that beams a lot of important values for us: excellence, distinction, creativity, dedication, love, enthusiasm, respect and gratitude...
"There is no lighter burden, nor more agreeable, than a pen.

— F. Petrarch
To make the grip section, body, cap or / and ornaments we employ materials such as :
Pens are pretty much our daily companions...
Although most of us are probably not aware of it, they play an important role in our lives...
A pen can be a piece of art, a practical tool, a wealth carried forward through generations, a gift, a luxury accessory, a memory, a collector's item or /and a piece of history.
Whether a letter, a signature or a note, each person's handwriting is unique and different, like our pens...
We invite you now to discover our work, we guarantee you'll find out in our creations more than a pleasant writing experience...
