For over twenty-five years, Gogo’s unique, custom designs
have been gifts to the elite of the world. Perhaps the best known example is
the pair of distinctive wedding rings cast from rattlesnake ribs for the
nuptials of JFK, Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, hosted by Gogo on Cumberland Island,
GA in 1997.
Gogo and Hannah know that working closely with a client to
create a life-long treasure is a unique and sensitive process. Wedding
or anniversary rings can be an inspiring piece that, each and every day, will
evoke the magical nature of love and an enduring union. Other gifts of wearable
art can make an unforgettable statement that will be forever linked to a
The special order process starts with in-depth conversations
to capture a client's individual wishes and needs, along with the spirit,
energy and aesthetics of who'll be receiving the gift.
Shapes, forms, colors, patterns and rhythms then speak to
the artists, who draw from the natural inspirations on Cumberland Island, as
well as those found during their travels: delicate sea urchins from Maine, seed
pods from Mexico, bird skulls from Martha's Vineyard, and other wonders from
Istanbul, Morocco, Spain and beyond.
The design options presented incorporate specific requests
down to the smallest detail, and also the kind of unspoken subtleties Gogo and
Hannah are able to instinctively pick up after years of working hands-on with
clients. The challenge of creating custom pieces in this manner is one that the
artists embrace. And at the same time, they are careful not to overpower the
purity of their inspiration: a creature or piece of nature that is perfect and
unique in itself.
Metals including sterling silver and 14k or 24K gold can be used,
along with an array of precious stones and beads: diamonds, rubies, topaz,
garnets, amethyst, aquamarine, tourmaline, baroque pearls, agate and more. Gogo
works closely with top registered gemologists to offer only the best, ethically
In creating one-of-a kind pieces of jewelry, Gogo and Hannah
pride themselves on going above and beyond. All special orders come with an
assurance of quality and a lifetime guarantee.
The entire special order process usually takes two months,
and prices vary. Variations of existing Gogo designs - substituting metals,
stones or converting forms (making earrings into pendants, for example) - can
also be arranged.
In addition, Gogo has recently begun to offer original fine
art sculpture and items for the home including candle holders, serving sets,
napkin rings and even ottomans, such as those displayed in the museum exhibit Gogo:
Nature Transformed, which originated at Atlanta's High Museum of Art before
traveling across the country.
