The pen is mightier than the sword... and gun

Mexican designer Jorge Diego Etienne has fashioned a pen holder aimed to remind us all that the pen is mightier than the sword… or gun, in this case. As an artist living amid the rampant violence that has overtaken his country, Etienne wishes to reclaim the revolver design as a testament to peace. “Choose your bullets is a desk accessory that reminds us that corruption and bad decisions can be more harmful than violence. This self-produced project was aimed at creating a product that would empower our decisions and reconsider the choices we make and the effects they have.” Every Choose Your Bullets piece is sculpted by industrial artisans in Monterrey, Mexico and engraved with a unique serial number.
