While studying computer graphics at NYU,
Gigie was suprised and a little amused by
what she saw in SoHo boutique shops.  So
many of the shapes and stones in the jewelry
she saw reminded her of the gardens she
visited during her childhood.

Without taking any jewelry classes, Gigie
started designing her own jewelry.  She loves
experimenting with different stones, metals,
vintage findings, as well as silk.  She is
always on the lookout for new materials and
ways to use them.  Gigie's greatest
satisfaction comes when people react with
delight when they first lay eyes on what she
has created.
