Summer 2013 Alpaca Collection


Gogo’s “New World”: Use of Alpaca Expands Design Possibilities “We’re always looking for new designs, and that means a lot of walks on the Island,” says Hannah Sayre-Thomas, President of Gogo, Inc., with an easy laugh. Living on Georgia’s Cumberland Island, home of the Carnegie family for seven generations, Hannah and her mother, Gogo Ferguson, draw their inspiration from the natural forms around them. They “recycle” nature’s gifts by transforming them into distinctive jewelry and one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Collected by well-known celebrities, politicians and dignitaries, these world-class designers are known for their incredibly detailed pieces cast in gold and silver, as well as jewelry made out of natural bone. But many of Gogo’s latest designs are crafted from Alpaca, a metal alloy that is combination of copper and nickel. “A whole new world opened up when, in Mexico, we discovered Alpaca. It’s beautiful, lightweight, versatile and allows us to create different sorts of pieces that are reasonably priced. Our Alpaca pieces are hand-hammered, which gives them more of an artisan feel. And they’re accessible to everyone,” says Hannah. In addition to adding a number of unique and affordable jewelry pieces to the Gogo collection, the use of Alpaca had led to the creation of nature-inspired homewares, including napkin rings, candle holders, bowls and serving sets with patterns interpreted from armadillo shells, cactus, seed pods, shells found on the beach and more. 2 - GOGO - SUMMER 2013 ALPACA COLLECTION 3


There’s even a Sea Urchin Ottoman, designed for Gogo’s exhibit at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. (“Gogo: Nature Transformed” runs through August 25th.)

“When I was a child, I remember my mother had a pair of silver salad servers she’d designed with handles made from deer femurs,” says Hannah. “That’s such a vivid memory for me. It made an everyday meal something special.” Handcrafted from Alpaca, Gogo tabletop items are well priced and ideal for wedding presents or gifts for any occasion. For Hannah and Gogo, they’re a way to open up their home and share a taste of life on Cumberland Island, with its wild beauty and inescapable connection to nature. “As much as we love jewelry, it’s kind of wonderful to see a piece on a day to day basis, for something to be as practical as it is beautiful,” Hannah adds, with another laugh. Whatever the item, a Gogo original is always a reflection of the Gogo lifestyle: embracing the luxury of simplicity and simply co-existing in the incredibly beautiful, living world that surrounds us. Gogo’s new Alpaca Collection has pieces of jewelry starting at $35, and homewares starting at $25 available at www.gogojewelry.com.
