A native of Cumberland Island, Georgia, Gogo Ferguson draws inspiration from the idyllic beauty that surrounds her there. Found items, from shells to bones to seaweed, become her designs cast in precious metals. From there, they go on to be treasured pieces owned by collectors such as Isabella Rossellini, Penelope Ann Miller, Wes Anderson, Nicole Miller and Maria Sharapova. Gogo even had the distinct privilege to design the wedding rings of John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Carolyn.
If you’re not traveling to Cumberland Island any time soon, you’ll have the chance to meet Gogo and experience her jewelry in person, here in Sarasota. Click here for the finer details at Sarasota Magazine.com

The inventive, ahead-of-his-time designer fashioned Nana’s brassiere out of the handy medium that is newspaper. // Click Here for MORE @ SarasotaMagazine.com
