San Miguel de Allende, an artsy town in the Mexican highlands, is not the first place you’d associate with jewelry designer Gogo Ferguson. That would be Cumberland Island, where Ferguson is one of just a handful of residents. But few people know that over the past 15 years, she and her family have made another home in San Miguel.
Three decades ago at her downtown Atlanta loft, Georgia artist Janet "Gogo" Ferguson first unveiled the nature-inspired pieces for what would become an internationally acclaimed, multi-million dollar jewelry business. As a descendant of Thomas Carnegie who bought Georgia's Cumberland Island in the late 19th century, the granddaughter of Lucy Ferguson spent much of her childhood growing up on coastal Georgia. Today as a year-round resident on Cumberland, Ferguson operates her Gogo Jewelry business and an artist studio there.
