Goldbug

Charleston based jewelry and gifts designed by Croghan’s fourth generation sisters, “Mini” Mariana Hay and Kathleen Hay Hagood. The Palmetto Bug is often an unwelcome guest in Charleston, South Carolina. Taking inspiration from their entomological form and the short story “The Gold-Bug” by Edgar Allen Poe, Mini has gilded these insects, elevating them to an art form that is worn often and with pride.
