Manon Richard is known for making ordinary objects seem magical by adding an ethereal glow. Her exquisite jewelry emits beautiful turquoise light, and she applies this same phosphorescent material to a charming series of bookmarks.
For those who still enjoy reading physical books, Richard celebrates literary tales with designs that are inspired by both the fantastical realm as well as our incredible Earth. Dragons and mermaids are fashioned into metal bookmarks while foxes, feathers, and lotus flowers are also attached to the long, curved pieces. Like her wearable creations, the glow-in-the-dark elements accentuate fine details like beading, wings, and scales.
Richard’s inspiration for this line of products was practical—she wanted to find her books in the dark. To activate this helpful feature, the phosphorescent element must be charged, which can be done via sunlight or a black light keychain that’ll make it glow in just a few seconds.
All of the bookmarks are available in Richard’s Etsy shop, Papillon9.
