Ex Libris Novum: “From the Books, Something New”
David Monteith is a writer and reporter in Little Rock. In his writing, he focuses on helping others tell their story. The earrings he creates are another, more whimsical way of doing that.
His support of social and environmental justice issues is reflected in the materials chosen for the construction of these pieces.
- The lightweight earring backs are handmade from discarded books rescued (with permission) from the recycle bin of CALS Main library in downtown Little Rock and gently used comic books, hymnals, and maps.
- The ear hooks are Argentium, a nickel-free variant of sterling silver.
- Each earring is handmade and unique.
(Note: Light weatherproofing has been applied, but they’re NOT WATERPROOF, so don’t wear them during your synchronized swimming routine!)
We are the stories we tell. What story will you tell (with your ears)?
