Gold Dust is a craft studio featuring sassy, sweet, and sustainable designs by Voula O. Current offerings include prints, journals, greeting cards, stationery, and postcards printed on recycled paper. Designs are created with a unique mix of techniques including pressed flowers and botanicals, photography, drawing, painting, cut paper, and found images. In an increasingly digital world, Gold Dust Studio inspires people to send some good old fashioned love, inspiration, and magic to their friends and family. This project was born in the midnight hours when I was a youth worker by day and spent my nights in the studio.. and after a few years’ hiatus, Gold Dust Studio is relaunching in Summer 2018!
PRODUCTION: All designs are gicleé prints made in my home studio; cards are blank inside and I offer a range of envelope colors.
SUSTAINABILITY: For stationery/cards, I’m in the process of switching over to a lovely new recycled paper- it’s 100% postconsumer waste paper that is process chlorine free and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, GreenSeal, and GreenE. For prints, I’m eagerly awaiting the launch of a new line of high quality print paper made of 100% postconsumer waste – more news on this soon!
VISION + CONNECTIONS: As an artist I’m always seeking to dream beyond my own creations, and to support and lift up the work of radical dreamers who are creating new worlds and ways of being. I support movements for liberation and social justice via donations of artwork for auctions and fundraisers, and design work such as custom thank you cards.
