excited about...black spot books!

how sweet;  the most personal of gifts, a tiny journal to wear over your heart



wear one, wear several.

antique victorian lace cast into a ring

antique gun trigger necklace  (gun used in a train robbery!)

Margaux Kent, an artist from Philadelphia, makes these amazing little books with thick, hand-torn drawing paper covered in worn leather sourced from ripped old chairs from Holland; boots, shoes and bags collected from all across the country..She has a story behind every piece she makes, which made me want to carry this lovely line of jewelry in our newest store.  I love jewelry with soul..
