Nestled away on Magazine Street between Josephine and St. Andrew is a little gem of a shop called Gogo. Named after its owner, Gogo Borgerding, the boutique features a stunning collection of jewelry comparable in vibrance to the razzle-dazzle of the Moulin Rouge.
I had the pleasure of meeting Gogo and she is every bit as charming as her lovely creations. A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, Borgerding drew inspiration for her cuff bracelets, earrings, and necklaces from the silver & anodized aluminum tumbler cups of the 1950s. Her store mirrors the same charm of the era and features six other local designers’ work, as well as various gifts.
I’ve already bought two necklaces from Gogo and I know that I am irrevocably hooked as a life-long fan and patron.
