My recent visit to the High Museum in Atlanta, reminded me how much I admire her and covet all of Gogo's jewelry.  Her work is heavily influenced by the natural environment of her hometown of Cumberland Island. The necklace pictured above is called the Gogo Logo Necklace- "The rattlesnake, and more specifically its bones, is indelibly linked with Gogo's jewelry designs. Around 1978 Gogo began the design of her iconic logo: three rattlesnake ribs curving in on each side with a vertebra in the center. Originally created out of found bones, Gogo went on to cast the logo in both gold and silver to create a more durable, elegant version."  Catch her exhibit at the High through August 25.

3. Give a Penny Designs- Atlanta, Georgia
