hi! i'm so excited to be guest blogging - i spend most of my time sewing away for forestbound, so it's a nice treat to venture over here for a week! i have a bunch of crafters lined up to share with you and i'm real into what they're up to these days... i hope you will be too. the first is one of my all-time favorites, the black spot books. margaux is based out of philadelphia and creates unique pieces with an aesthetic that runs true to my own heart.
her focus is mainly on hand-stitched books... these one of a kind pieces are constructed out of bits of leather that she uncovers with her own hands like forgotten about treasure. whether it has been stumbled upon inside of an abandoned house or salvaged from a 19th century british chair - margaux's books continually blow my mind with their intricate craftsmanship and ability to beautifully capture a small part of history.
lately she's been working on these necklaces - wearable (and useable) miniature books!
you think it couldn't get any better - but wait.. she also makes jewelry! jaw dropping jewelry at that. like this ring - a piece of victorian lace that has been hand cast in white bronze.
margaux also creates these amazing prints. oh and photographs too! she does it all. all of her wares are available on her etsy shop. she also has a website where you can see more of her work.
