ABOUT GOGO JEWELRY
"It all begins with a daily journey through an old maritime forest to the beach, something glistens in the corner of her eye, uncovered by the sands of time, awaiting to be transformed into something irresistibly beautiful."
This is the daily routine of Gogo and her daughter Hannah on Cumberland Island, home of the Carnegie family for seven generations.
Gogo's life on Cumberland has gifted her with an insatiable sense of wonder and respect for her surroundings. Her Great Grandmother and Grandmother passed down their wisdom and stories of Cumberland island, and how to appreciate the wondrous forms of nature and the cycles of life. 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 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 June 23rd 2013 the High Museum Atlanta honored Gogo with a six month installation, presenting the evolution of her creativity. Her most famous pieces will be 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.
