These small hand-embroidered treasures from Macon&Lesquoy — elegant, fun, quirky, and colorful all at once — will make you stand out without being flashy. Pin them onto the collar of a plain white blouse or the breast pocket of your favorite jean jacket. Whether you showcase one on its own or pair a few together, they are sure to add a chic and unique touch to your look. They are also the perfect accessory for hiding small snags, holes, or stains in your favorite clothes that you just can’t bring yourself to get rid of.

Macon&Lesquoy “Hand-Embroidered Jewels” feature gorgeous goldwork on felt and are as meticulously crafted as military patches. Their brooches are made in Pakistan, by artisans who have amassed generations worth of expertise.

Each patch, designed by Macon&Lesquoy, is mounted on a pin. Over the past 5 years, Macon&Lesquoy have become experts at designing goldwork embroidery patterns in gold, silver, and colored threads.

Macon&Lesquoy pins are packaged in small black boxes. Hand embroidery is fragile and you should never wash your pins.

Hand embroidery is a delicate art. The artists at Macon & Lesquoy have dedicated years of practice to their craft to become skilled enough to produce pieces like the ones you see here.

Tips for keeping your pins in good shape:

– Don’t wear them in places where they are likely to rub against other materials
(like under the strap of your purse), as this could cause them to become discolored, lose threads or get ripped away from the pin.

– Don’t wash or dry clean your pins. Goldwork doesn’t get along with water very well; water causes it to rust and lose its vibrant color.
The glue that is used to attach the patch to the pin is strong and environmentally friendly, but water can weaken it.

– Put your pins back in their boxes when you’re not wearing them to protect them from harm.

Marie Macon et Anne-Laure LesquoyWhen the daughters of an antique dealer and an astrophysicist meet, they tell stories. Stories about materials and textures, sewn stories, unstitched and undone, their stories, other people’s, and the ones they enjoy inventing. This is what Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy have been doing through their collections of accessories since 2009.

Marie and Anne-Laure met on the campus of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle/Les ateliers in Paris.

Today, they put their own twist on traditional embroidery techniques to design jewelry that is both quirky and useful.
