Gogo Jewelry has been transforming nature into wearable art for over 30 years…
It all begins with a daily journey through an old maritime forest to the beach, something glistens, uncovered by the tide, awaiting to be transformed into timeless jewelry. This is the routine of jewelry designer Janet ‘Gogo’ Ferguson. Cumberland is the southernmost of the Georgia barrier islands, home of the Carnegie family for seven generations.
Island matriarchs Lucy Carnegie and granddaughter Lucy Ferguson instilled their wisdom and passion for the natural beauty of the island in generations to follow. Growing up on Cumberland has gifted Gogo with an insatiable sense of wonder and respect for her surroundings; a legacy that is a constant in their transformations of the natural world into their designs.
In her extensive travels she has recognized the foundation that nature provides in design throughout all cultures – from adornment to functional art and sculptures.
