>Her Majesty The Queen


The Queen is 85 today! As the Head of State of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms she only has another 5 years to go, before stripping Queen Victoria (63 years, 216 days&0000000000000216000000!) as the UK’s longest reigning monarch.
British artist, Ann Carrington has an impressive body of work spanning the last 20 years and in celebration of the Queen’s 80th birthday, she was commissioned to produce some amazing pieces using pearl, troca and agoya shell buttons for the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor.

Most of Ann’s original work has been snapped up by the likes Elton John, Paul Smith and Gwyneth Paltrow but she does have limited edition prints available on her website here.
