Selected as Official GRAMMY Gift
By Lindsay Peyton
The first cuff bracelet Margaux Jones made was more like a talisman.
On a whim, she bought some fabric, brought out her old sewing machine and added the word “breathe” to the piece – making an affirmation she could wear around her wrist. The next one read “strong,” a reminder of her inner prowess.
Jones was in a rut, working a job that kept her from fully exploring her creative potential – but she was on the brink of making a break for it.
The single mom who resides in Ballard never dreamt that her cuffs might be the key to a major sea change. She simply thought making jewelry would be a fun hobby.
Jones started selling the bracelets on Facebook a few months ago and named her side business “NW 58th Street” in honor of the women who live on her street, a supportive circle of neighbors who inspire her.
It wasn’t long before the cuffs were picked up by a couple of stores – and then placed in the swag bag for the Teen Choice Awards.More ›
