Bring on the BLING…

They don’t call Ashley Carter the “diva of sparkle”, the “glitter queen”, the “lady of glitz” and the reigning “monarch of folly” for nothing”.

She’s pulled out all the stops with her Goldbug Studio collection for Spring 2011…magical nests, festive hats and cake toppers abound. All are richly appointed with millinery blooms, a dusting of magic and a luminous countenance that comes from the exceptional quality of vintage and found materials with which she creates them, as well as the care given to their design and construction. They are whimsical, ethereal, festive and oh so cool.

Here’s a peek at her peek at the recent NY Gift Fair. She is clearly channeling old school glamour, long forgotten Mardi-Gras balls, and starlet-style.

I confess to drooling, it’s all a bit much to take in and well, I think I see t all and then when I leave her boot, checks flushed and imagination reeling I feel as if the photos can never do her displays and art work justice…

And here are a few images of the latest arrivals

Paul will be re-doing Ashley’s page on the site to showcase these wondrous new works…and in the meantime, feel free to email if you want to see more pics or need details on size and prices

Ashley, you know I adore the vibe of your work, thanks for all the fab new creations…I am lucky to call you “friend”.
