Gogo cuffs

New Orleans native Gogo Borgerding says her personal style is more vintage, but the colorful metal jewelry she makes is decidedly modern.

The artist: After graduating in 2000 from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) with a degree in metals and jewelry design, Borgerding returned to New Orleans and got to work. In 2006, she opened Gogo Jewelry. Her now well-known shop features the work of 17 other artists as well as her own.

Best sellers: Sterling and anodized aluminum cuffs ($185 to $545) in various sizes and popular patterns, such as waterlike “Sea pods” and “Chicago” (very Frank Lloyd Wright). Her sought-after cuffs appeal to men and women.

Her favorite: The “Mondo mid-century” pattern in zesty shades of teal and lime green

Big break: In 2005, she landed a booth at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and sold out of her cuffs that year. Borgerding has been at the Jazz Fest, as locals call it, every year since then.

What’s new: New patterns for cuffs, sterling side earrings ($45 to $225) and necklaces ($55 to $455).

Where to buy: www. Or when you visit New Orleans, head for her shop, Gogo Jewelry, 2036 Magazine St.
