Shop Announcement:

⭐PLEASE NOTE. I have extended my shipping times to 7 days. I still aim to ship domestic items within 3 working days but want to minimise trips to the post office for international/upgraded orders. My post office days are Tuesday and Friday. Thank you for understanding! I also have several items in clearance at the moment as I'm thinning out my lines. If you like something, grab it while you can as it might not return!⭐

Welcome to Francesca's Words. I specialise in weird, sarcastic and quirky stationery, accessories and art.

Please note longer order times mean I have to order from my suppliers. Products are listed by theme, e.g. feminist prints in 'Civil Writes' and mythology Valentine's in 'Mythology Mayhem'. Please ask if you have any questions!

Study Like Athena Blue HB Pencils, Greek Mythology, Back to School, Student Gift

Study Like Athena Blue HB Pencils, Greek Mythology, Back to School, Student Gift
£3.55 1 Available
Love this


NOTE: I'm experimenting with designs! You can choose the old design (red tipped pencils, gold foil), or new design (white tipped, silver foil). Note there's a 6-8 week wait time for new pencils, as I have to place an order with the supplier, and they take 3-4 weeks. The 'old' design ships in 7 days.

Whether you're a bookworm, a massive nerd or a huge fan of the Greek goddess Athena, these pencils are for you! I love Athena: she's the goddess of handicraft, warfare and wisdom, so inherently VERY COOL. I feel like she'd knuckle down with school and her studies even if she wasn't a fan of the subject, hence the pencil design.

Treat yourself to these pencils before you go back to school, or gift them to a student or a teacher who's starting a new school term or heading off to university.

Your pencils are HB and made with wood and graphite.

PLEASE NOTE: each pencil is foil stamped. As you can see, each pencil is different. There are often marks from the stamping process, the wood shades may be different shades. The eraser might not fit 'perfectly'. I cannot offer a refund if you consider your pencils 'imperfect'; if you would prefer a 'perfect' product, I recommend you go to the supermarket.

The actual pencil colour may vary from monitor to monitor.

Athena's always been my favourite goddess in the Greek stories, and I thought this phrase would be perfect on a pencil!
