GIVEAWAY The Black Spot Books Leather Necklace! CLOSED

AND THE WINNER IS:
True Random Number Generator Min:1 Max:692 Result: 262 Powered by RANDOM.ORG=
Jessica McQuarter! Congrats Jessica! And a great big thank you to everyone who entered!

The Black Spot Books is the totally amazing Etsy shop of Philadelphia artist Margaux Kent.

Margaux's arts are made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and bound into wearable curiosities and inscribable keepsakes.

I fell in love with her hand stitched leather book necklaces the first time I saw them! Her leather has been bartered from farms in Ecuador, ripped from old chairs in Holland, taken from boots and shoes and saddles, and found in abandoned houses across the United States. Every book is made with different materials, so no book will ever have a duplicate!

I talked to Margaux on Saturday where she was enjoying a day at the Jersey shore with her hubby, Walter, just back from Iraq and their baby Soren.


Margaux also has a wonderful shop full of vintage treasures called Plundered and a beautiful website where you can see what she is up to!

WHAT YOU GET:

The Black Spot Books is giving one lucky winner one of Margaux's amazing hand stitched leather book necklaces!

Although reeeeeeelly hard to choose I think that my favorite item is Nightwanderer, a drawing created on a lovely sea (16 x 20).
I, like so many others, follow your blog.

Wow- I'm so glad someone thought to post about BSB on neatorama. The illness apprentice series is fascinating, and the babyrosa necklace absolutely charmed me (I thought it was a capybara at first, and will now have to learn more about babyrousa).

I'm afraid I don't tweet or blog, but just wanted to let you know that this was a very successful advertising campaign- I've come across six references to the book necklace in the past half hour of surfing!

I'm a writer, so I'm in love with the autumnal library necklace. The colors are beautiful, and the collection of little books would be like a muse around my neck!

I love the book necklace. Absolutely adorable! I blogged about it here.

Laura Lee said...

It is all wonderful stuff, but being a writer, it would mean a lot to have the book necklace that you're featuring. I am very attracted to it and it would be a real conversation starter. lauralee@speechwriting.com
