ABOUT GOGO JEWELRY

ABOUT GOGO JEWELRY

It all begins with a daily journey through an old maritime forest to the beach, something glistens, uncovered by the breeze, awaiting to be transformed into irresistibly beautiful jewelry. This is the daily routine of Gogo and her daughter Hannah - now president of the company - on Cumberland Island, home of the Carnegie family for seven generations. 

Growing up on Cumberland Island has gifted them with an insatiable sense of wonder and respect for their surroundings. Gogo's Great Grandmother and Grandmother passed down their wisdom and stories of Cumberland island, and how to appreciate the wondrous forms of nature. Throughout her travels around the world - and from her love of other cultures -  Gogo has discovered the common thread of incorporating nature into life and wearable art. 

Gogo has been designing jewelry for twenty five years by taking precious gifts that nature provides and transforming them into dazzling pieces of artwork. Holding a piece of Gogo jewelry in your hands feels like you are truly entwined with the spirit of the creature or plant that inspired it. Wearing a Gogo gives you the sense of an untouched barrier island wilderness, the ocean and the celebration of nature itself.



From January 19th to August 23rd 2013 the High Museum Atlanta honored Gogo with a six month installation, presenting the evolution of her creativity. Her most famous pieces were on display alongside exclusive designs especially for the exhibit. As well as some of her first natural bone designs and pieces donated by celebrity clients.

The Exhibition then moved to the Montgomery Museum Of Fine Arts http://www.mmfa.org/ and is looking to move to New York City next.

Other milestones include designing John and Carolyn Kennedy's wedding rings, a necklace for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and inclusion into Presidential and Olympic collections. Gifts to heads of state, first ladies, along with many high profile figures in music, dance, fashion, sport, news and government.
